Horseback Writing Ekphrastic Poetry Workshop
Poet Jodie Hollander teaches this workshop, in which participants respond poetically to the Equus exhibition at Coconino Center for the Arts.
Experience art at a new level and use it to inspire your writing. Students will study examples of celebrated horse poems that respond to or were inspired by art. Then students will be led through a variety of writing activities inspired by art, ultimately leading to a draft of an original poem. Students will discuss poetic techniques such as the use of vivid imagery, the importance of sonics, how to shape a poetic line as well as techniques for drafting and revision.
