Start the year off right with an ekphrastic breakfast with Joan Leotta, as we explore the story of food in art history and ways to incorporate food into your stories and poetry. Then we get back to basics with a beginner's guide to ekphrasis, suitable for those who are new to The Ekphrastic Review and those who would enjoy a refresher.
Looking forward to these and hope to see you there!
An Ekphrastic Brunch with Joan Leotta
Bring your tea, coffee, and breakfast and join longtime friend of The Ekphrastic Review and well-known culinary storyteller Joan Leotta. In this special workshop, Lorette will show a brief food tour through art history. Joan will share ways to look at food in art and direct a couple of writing exercises. Dig in!
A Beginner's Guide to Ekphrastic Writing
Join us on January 31 from 4 to 6 pm eastern time for an introduction to ekphrastic literature and the world of The Ekphrastic Review. We will look over some of the long history of ekphrasis, and share ideas about how writing about art improves your writing, imagination, and your life in general! This session will take us back to basics for those who are just starting to dabble in ekphrastic writing, but it will be fun as a refresher too. We will do some playful exercises to generate ideas but the focus will be on ekphrastic history, definitions, benefits, and approaches.
