Discover Your Inner Poet!

 Discover Your Inner Poet:  Art-Inspired Writing

This workshop is an art and word lover's feast. Reproductions and images from the VMFA's vast collection and artwork from the Bay School's Art Speaks Gallery will inspire poems, journal entries, and prose vignettes. A variety of poetic forms, including the highly imaginative dramatic monologue and ekphrastic formats, enables participants to uncover the inner writer that resides in us all. This interactive session is tailor-made for anyone with a willingness to explore the unique qualities of written language that help define each writer's voice.  This program has been organized by the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.

Saturday, Sept. 20 10am - 1pm
 Tuition $50
 Instructor:  Carolyn Kreiter-Foronda
