Explore how creative writing can respond to visual art

What is ekphrastic poetry? Join us for a day of activity in Tate Exchange, where we will be exploring how poetry, through the imaginative act of narrating and reflecting on the “action” of a painting or sculpture, may amplify and expand its meaning.

Poetry Workshop, 13.00-15.00

Learn how to respond to visual art through creative writing and receive editorial advice and feedback from Edge Hill University.
