Workshop | An Introduction to Ekphrastic Poetry (for adults)

This event has passed Get Tickets

Event description

Join Annie Mullen-Walsh and dive into the world of ekphrastic poems, responding to exhibitions hosted at Platform Arts. 

Ekphrastic poetry allows us to create using inspiration from the art around us and delve into new themes we may not have explored before. Annie will help build participants’ understanding of key literary techniques including metaphor, imagery, repetition and juxtaposition; allowing & encouraging them to use these in their own work as well as analyse these in others’ work.

No prior poetry knowledge is needed, just an open mind! This is fun workshop designed to challenge and encourage creative and curious minds. The workshop will go for an hour and half, and include a 20-minute intermission break with tea and light snacks provided.

$5 ticket covers snack, tea and all supplies.

Please note, this session is for adults. An earlier workshop on 21 April is being held for secondary students.
