Talking to the Walls: Writing Ekphrastic Poetry – with Jessica Jacobs

Together, we’ll explore different pathways into the deep conversations available to us with visual art and its creators. Ideal for writers and artists of all levels of experience, our time together will be primarily generative and designed to give you a new set of tools to carry away with you and keep you writing. Much of this class will draw on the instructor’s experience of researching and writing Pelvis with Distance, a biography-in-poems of Georgia O’Keeffe, which included an immersion in O’Keeffe’s art, writing, and biography, as well as a month alone in her beloved New Mexico high desert.

In-person Attendees

Writing and visual arts students enrolled in the in-person Summer Program at FAWC at the time of the hybrid workshop, as well as the general public, are welcome to attend in-person and need to CLICK HERE to reserve their spot in the Stanley Kunitz Common Room. Max in-person attendees is capped at 30.
