The Next Page’s final creative writing workshop of the year takes place in just over a week on Saturday 3rd December in Whitley Bay’s library. The afternoon workshop is called Ekphrasis workshop: Finding Words in Pictures. The Greeks used ekphrasis to describe writing about art. The aim was to make the reader imagine the work of art as if it were physically present.
Workshop co-ordinator Jennifer C Wilson takes the word as a springboard for next Saturday’s workshop. Come and find inspiration from paintings, sculpture and other artworks. Jennifer will guide you through a number of exercises and there’ll be chances for feedback throughout the afternoon.
Ekphrasis workshop: Finding Words in Pictures. Saturday 3rd December Whitley Bay library 1.30pm to 4pm Cost: £20. Book your place online
