(Part of the interlinked Broadsided Press workshop series, which includes Poetic Art Making: Generating Visual Ideas From Writing with Millian Giang Pham and Making Broadsides: Bringing Poetry and Art into Conversation with  Elizabeth Bradfield)

Countless writers have been inspired by visual art — both as a subject and to learn to see closely and better understand their own medium (language!). How might a poem be “painterly”? Or even “sculptural”? How can images help us experience our words anew? In this interactive workshop, we’ll write in response to art made in real time in Millian Pham’s workshop, discuss ekphrastic poems, and create text/art collaborations, including broadsides inspired by Broadsided Press.

Biography
