Writing from Art: Ekphrasis - Nottingham Trent University
Contact course provider
About the Course
Learn how to ‘paint with words’ on this two day creative writing course for writers of both prose and poetry.
The course explores ekphrastic writing, where you use art as inspiration in your work and expand its meaning through perspective, character and technique to create your own written masterpiece.
On this course you will:
experience new ways of writing creatively from new sources of inspiration
be guided through a gallery in Nottingham to learn how to use painting and sculpture in your work
undertake a range of practical writing exercises, each focussing on a different aspect of writing from art
attend workshops to receive and give feedback.
No experience of writing or art is necessary. It’s more important that you just wants to write. The course is also useful for anyone writing non-fiction who wants to free up their creative thinking, or for artists who wish to write about their work or the work of others.
What will I gain?
You’ll leave with plenty of ideas to stimulate new writing beyond the course, and have started a collection of written pieces that can be developed for publication. You might also be encouraged to pursue other writing courses.
