Master Class: Writing Ekphrastic Poetry Drawing Inspiration from other Art Forms

Saint Petersburg, FL


Sales have ended for this event. Tickets may still be available at the door.


Keep St. Pete Lit is pleased to name the second recipient of the LitSpace St. Petersburg Writers Residency, Alison Stone.

In this experiential workshop with Ms. Stone, we will explore using other art forms to stimulate poems. Whether the inspiration is a work of visual art or a desire for revisionist mythmaking, other genres have served to spark poets for centuries. We will examine some viewpoints and strategies used by a variety of poets, and then generate work using in-class prompts. There will be time for sharing and feedback if desired.

About the Instructor:
Alison Stones poems have appeared in The Paris Review, Poetry, Ploughshares, Poetry International, Chelsea, Barrow Street, and a variety of other journals and anthologies.  She has been awarded Poetrys Frederick Bock Prize and New York Quarterlys Madeline Sadin award.

Ms. Stone is also a visual artist who spent nine years producing oil painting of the 78 images of the tarot.  The Stone Tarot is available in stores and on the internet. (stonetarot.com).  Ms. Stone has exhibited her paintings in a variety of galleries, museums, and other venues in London, MA, RI, and NY.

She is a psychotherapist in private practice in New York City and Nyack, NY.
