Voice and Writing from Art – Poetry Workshop with Bruce Rice
Where: George Bothwell Branch Library, 2965 Gordon Rd, Regina (Southland Mall)
When: Tuesday April 3 - 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
An ekphrastic poem is a vivid description of a scene or, more commonly, a work of art. Through the imaginative act of narrating and reflecting on the “action” of a painting or sculpture, the poet may amplify and expand its meaning. Join poet and editor Bruce Rice to explore writing ekphrastic poetry.
Presented in partnership with the Regina Public Library’s Writes of Spring program.
Participation will be limited, so please register in advance.
