Norwalk’s Poet Laureate Bill Hayden will lead participants in an “Ekphrastic Poetry Experience” (poetry written about works of art) at the workshop on Monday, Oct. 28 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Writers of all levels will be given time to preview the artwork in the gallery before choosing of one or more pieces to focus on to create poetry. Afterwards, the group will gather to share and discuss the drafts. Anyone wanting to further edit their works is encouraged to contact Hayden for help.
The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. For more information, call RAC at (203) 866-2744.
