Join Poet T.L. Sanders as we explore ekphrastic poems and found poems through virtual visitations of various places in time around the United States. Inspired by history, we will experiment with poetic formats, and then invite sharing and discussion to enrich our sense of community. This workshop is designed for beginner poets and experienced poets. An ekphrastic poem is a vivid description of a scene or a work of art. Found poems are created from pieces of literature that already exist. Leave the workshop with a few poems drafted and a list of resources to continue your poetic journey. This program was made in partnership with Whispering Prairie Press. This class is part of the Written Storytelling Certification Program from Mid-Continent Public Library. It counts as a Writing Elective. Program registration will close 30 minutes prior to the start of the program. Participants will be emailed a Zoom access code 30 minutes before the start of the program, so please include your email in the registration. Please note: You must sign into the room prior to the start of the program. Admittance to the classroom will close five minutes after the program's start time. Space is limited.
