Writing from Art
In this course we will study about and practice Ekphrasis, the “the literary representation of a visual art,” (Heffernan). No previous creative writing or visual arts background is required. This course emphasizes the generation of creative writing in a museum setting, but as we move into the course, students will practice editing skills in the workshop sessions and develop strategies and approaches to revision.
For the 2018 spring session, in addition to trying their hand at fiction, poetry and creative nonfiction, the class will work together to put on an “Art Happening” at the Worcester Art Museum – a live Audio Tour based on podcasts created by the class.
