CU Poetry at the Champaign Library - Let's Get Ekphrastic!

  • Champaign Public Library upstairs in Room 215 200 W Green St Champaign, IL, 61820 United States (map)

 This week we will spend the first part of the meetup writing to an ekphrastic poetry prompt. What the heck is that? No worries  - here is a description from a school teachers assignment web page -"Ekphrasis: writing that comments upon another art form, for instance a poem about a photograph or a novel about a film." The page also has some high falutin and pretty good examples. 
And as always, feel free to bring in your own poetry to share. There's no better way to get get better at poetry than to read and help make other's poetry better.To get the best feedback please bring in 5-7 paper copies of your work so we can scribble helpful ideas and praise. No copies, no problem, just come to talk poetry, read work from your phone, it's all about the sharing and learning. Hope to see everyone there!
