Forms & Features at Compound Yellow: Ekphrastic Poetry

04/16/2018 - 6:00pm

All experience levels are welcome to a discussion and creative workshop led by Poetry Foundation Library Coordinator Maggie Queeney. In April, we focus on ekphrastic poetry, verse that describes and responds to other works of art, including paintings, photographs, sculpture, and music.

The group will explore a wide variety of ekphrastic poems. A creative workshop, where participants will be guided through composing an ekphrastic poem, will conclude the session. To register, please email
