Learning to See Poetry Workshop Series @GPL

The Brenda Connor-Bey Learning to See™ Legacy Workshop Series focuses on 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.) 

Partially funded by 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, and the September class in particular focuses on new poets and those new to poetry. Students register online for three-session workshops of two hours each, and participants are strongly encouraged to attend all three sessions. After registration limit is reached, a Wait List is formed and students are contacted as spaces become available.
