WRITING WORKSHOP WITH JUDITH YOUNGERS | JUNE 25
In conjunction with Paula Owens' Exhibit
INTO AND BEYOND THE FRAME:
Exploring Voices and Angles via Ekphrastic Writing
Saturday, June 25, 2022 | 9:30am - 12:30pm
Instructor: Judith Youngers
Location: Studio Comfort Texas, 716 High Street
Unbind yourself and morph into a ventriloquist as you try different voices, personas, and angles in our upcoming ekphrastic writing workshop. A stimulating springboard for both novice and experienced writers, drafting ekphrastic poems is a process of possibility and discovery. Published poet, educator and art lover, Judith Youngers, PhD, guides participants in viewing visual art to conjure voices and word images. Participants will be encouraged to start at least three writing pieces, with a focus on poetry. Explorations can include flash fiction, microfiction (a “short short”) or creative nonfiction.
Back by popular demand, Judith trusts that you’ll find this fresh workshop supportive, challenging, intimate, engaging and fun.
Studio Comfort Texas featured artist Paula Owen will be participating as a student and honored guest. Join us later in the day for a closing reception of her exhibit, "Unbound Botanicals" 2-4 pm.
