An informal gathering for collaborating with fellow poets about works in progress, that’s what Poets@Play is all about. We alternate between writing and sharing our works in progress. This is not a workshop, but rather a playhouse – some starter ideas and a comfortable place to play with words.
For this month's meeting we are going ekphrastic. That is, we are focusing on using a particular work of art to provide subject matter for a poem, or suggest a thematic approach, or some other characteristic of the poem. This could be from a painting, drawing, or photograph. Or stretch a little more and select a video or song for inspiration. We will have several books with works of art, but feel free to bring your own.
