Bring The Ekphrastic Review to your local by Zoom!
By now you have heard about our online writing workshops. And we hope you'll join us for a few the great workshops in the lineup- we have Ekphrastic Flash Fiction coming up, Wine and Art Write Night, Sunday Sessions, and will be adding many more.
But why not bring The Ekphrastic Review to you? Lorette will join you as a guest speaker on the joys of ekphrastic writing, tailoring a workshop or course to your needs. She has done online appearances, workshops, and full courses with various university creative writing classes, the Bath Flash Fiction Festival, Hong Fook Mental Health Association, and more.
Contemplating visual art and writing about it is fun, therapeutic, creative, and expansive. It is for professional writers and English lit students, but also for teens, senior centres, churches, museums, hospitals, community centres, cultural centres, and more.
Lorette will create a program with your audience in mind, curating art and conversation around the needs of your participants. For example, if she is working with a particular art gallery, selections will be from that collection.
Workshops can be single session or in series. Reasonable rates/flexible to your budget.
Contact Lorette at firstname.lastname@example.org. Put GUEST WORKSHOP in subject line! We would love to connect with and inspire your community!
