Writing the Arts: Object + Words = Ekphrasis

  • About

    Writing the Arts is a collaborative project of the Glen Arbor Arts Center and Michigan Writers. Using the upcoming GAAC Vessels exhibit as foundation (August 26-October 27), Michigan Writers will lead four, one-hour Saturday morning sessions in the GAAC gallery. 

    Ekphrasis is the time-honored tradition of using the visual arts for literary inspiration. Writing the Arts sessions are free, but pre-registration is required. The program is open to writers of any skill level, from emerging-to-advanced. To read more and register, click here.

    Additionally, Writing the Arts participants will have the option of submitting revised pieces to Michigan Writers through the Dunes Review platform, and some may be selected for publication in this literary journal.

    Michigan Writers is a non-profit organization that fosters the advancement and appreciation of reading and writing by providing education and publication opportunities.
