A Certain Slant of Light

During this hands-on workshop, we’ll discuss perspective, persona, musicality, setting, and other poetic techniques as participants create their own responses to art. Paintings, sculpture, film clips, and photography will serve as generative springboards for poems. Come ready to view, discuss, focus, write. 

Marjorie Maddox is professor of English and Creative Writing at Lock Haven University. Her 20 books include Heart Speaks, Is Spoken For [shantiarts.co] (Shanti Arts), an ekphrastic collaboration with photographer Karen Elias. and the forthcoming In the Museum of My Daughter’s Mind, an ekphrastic response to 18 paintings by her daughter, plus work by other artists.
