Experience art at a new level and use it to inspire your writing. Internationally known poet Jodie Hollander teaches this workshop, in which participants respond poetically to exhibitions at SBCAST.

Then students will be led through a variety of writing activities inspired by the art, ultimately leading to a draft of an original poem. Students will discuss poetic techniques such as the use of vivid imagery, the importance of sonics, how to shape a poetic line as well as techniques for drafting and revision. No experience necessary.
