Picture This: An Evening with Edward Hopper - A Writing Workshop

For this short course in ekphrasis--the recreation in words of a work of art—we’ll draw inspiration from the paintings of Edward Hopper as prompts for our own poems or brief pieces of prose. Bring your laptop or notebook and pen and be ready to write! This course is open to writers of all levels.

Sarah Freligh is the author of Sad Math, winner of the 2014 Moon City Press Poetry Prize and the 2015 Whirling Prize from the University of Indianapolis. Other books include A Brief Natural History of an American Girl, winner of the Editor’s Choice award from Accents Publishing, and Sort of Gone. Her work has appeared in Sun Magazine, Hotel Amerika, BOAAT Journal, Rattle, on Writer’s Almanac, and anthologized in the 2011 anthology Good Poems: American Places. Among her awards are a 2009 poetry fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts and a grant from the Constance Saltonstall Foundation in 2006.
