Join SAGE member and writer Tyler Truman Julian for a 3-day writing workshop, asking: Does life imitate art or does art imitate life? Ekphrasis (description in Greek) is a way to capture real life and art on the page. In this workshop, we'll spend three days in and out of the SAGE Community Art Center writing about what we see and how it changes what we think and feel. We'll spend Day 1 practice writing vivid, descriptive images out in the community, while learning about and reading work from writers who practice ekphrasis. Day 2 will bring us back to SAGE and in front of the pieces in "Joy in Self-Expression: The Legacy of Nancy Buening", curated by Nancie Furnish, where we'll employ the skills practiced the day before to write poems and vignettes about the pieces in front of us. And, Day 3 will be a chance to work closely with Tyler and other students to revise one of your written pieces to present at a Gallery Reading the last week of "Joy in Self-Expression: The Legacy of Nancy Buening". Both poetry and prose writers of all experience levels are welcome to join!
