Learning to See Poetry Workshop

Learning to See Poetry Workshop Online

The Brenda Connor-Bey Learning to See™ Legacy Workshop Series focuses on writing poems about art, and exploring all creative writing, as well as other ways to "see" poetry through the "ekphrastic" style.  (Ekphrasis = “Description” in Greek. An ekphrastic poem is a vivid description of a scene or, more commonly, a work of art.)  Teacher: Doretta Cornell.

Students enroll for a series of three two-hour workshops to be conducted on Mondays May 9, 16, and 23 from 1:30-3:30PM. Registering on May 9th enrolls you for the entire May three-session workshop series. Participants must attend all three sessions.

Partially funded by Poets & Writers, the Friends of Greenburgh Library, and Greenburgh Arts & Culture, workshops are free and open to the public. Beginners as well as established poets are welcomed. 

After the registration limit is reached, a Wait List will be formed and registrants will be contacted as spaces become available.
