Writing the Arts: Object + Words = Ekphrasis
September 10, 17, 24 + October 1
Writing the Arts is a collaborative project of the Glen Arbor Arts Center and Michigan Writers. Using the upcoming GAAC Vessels exhibit as foundation (August 26-October 27), Michigan Writers will lead four, one-hour Saturday morning sessions in the GAAC gallery. Writing the Arts sessions are September 10, 17, 24, with an open reading on October 1; 10 – 11 am.
Ekphrasis is the time-honored tradition of using the visual arts for literary inspiration. Writing the Arts sessions are free, but pre-registration is required. The program is open to writers of any skill level, from emerging-to-advanced. To read more and register, go to GlenArborArt/CLASSES.
Additionally, Writing the Arts participants will have the option of submitting revised pieces to Michigan Writers through the Dunes Review platform, and some may be selected for publication in this literary journal.
Michigan Writers is a non-profit organization that fosters the advancement and appreciation of reading and writing by providing education and publication opportunities. The Glen Arbor Arts Center is located at 6031 S. Lake St., Glen Arbor. Call 231/334-6112 for information.
