    Name: What the Human Catches On: Reading and Writing Ekphrastic Poems from Snapshots
    Date: July 10, 2022
    Time: 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM CDT
    Event Description:
    Learn about ekphrasis and ekphrastic poetry through the lens of the snapshot at The Writers’ Colony at Dairy Hollow (WCDH). “What the Human Catches On: Reading and Writing Ekphrastic Poems from Snapshots,” is instructed by creative writing instructor and Ph.D. student, Emma Aylor. In contrast to the fine art photograph, this workshop will consider the “found” or vernacular photograph a site of energy, compression, and vitality. Participants will gain an expanded understanding of ekphrastic poetry, the interrelation of various artistic media, and the transformations that can occur when such media speak to one another. Participants will use this knowledge to produce a poem draft of their own. The workshop is Sunday, July 10th, from 1:30 to 3:30 pm CST at WCDH, 515 Spring Street in Eureka Springs. The class fee is $35 per person and all proceeds benefit the WCDH scholarship fund. Register at writerscolony.org/events, email director@writerscolony.org, or call 479-253-7444.
