Is there a road you didn’t travel? Thinking about writing the family story? Looking for advice on the nuts and bolts of editing prose? And who told you not to copy, anyway? Get your creative on in one of our spring workshops.
You want to submit! But how?
Poet Barbara Sabol will lend us insights, information and inspiration on submitting poetry and short prose to journals and presses. This workshop meets in the lovely Austintown Library. There is no registration fee, but we are capping the number of participants, so registration is required. Please visit our Workshops page for more information and to register.
Ekphrasis is a literary art made after a visual art; for example, a poem inspired by a photograph. Join Nin Andrews and Karen Schubert for a workshop on writing ekphrastic poetry. We will meet at the McDonough Museum of Art on Wick Ave. and engage with the works on exhibit. No required registration, fee or experience. Please bring pen & paper. Wed. Feb. 24th, 6:00-7:30 p.m. For examples of ekphrastic poetry, visit the online journal Ekphrastic: writing and art on art and writing.
“Spike” by Tony Armeni will be on exhibit, along with other work in the YSU Art Department Faculty Show.
