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 a 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. 

Please inquire with Library staff at 914-721-8216 regarding program status in the Fall of 2020.
