Seeing our Stanzas: Ekphrasis & Identity with Rachel Eliza Griffiths

Rachel Eliza Griffiths
Date and Time: 
January 28, 2017 - 2:00PM to 5:00PM
Event Location: 
Conference Room
Admission: 
$75

In this one-day workshop we will write towards both personal and national identity and imaginations through the space of visual art. Using American Stanzas: 2006 – 2016 as a three-dimensional text, Rachel Eliza Griffiths will lead a detailed writing workshop that will include close readings of Cave Canem poetry that inspired her exhibit, generative writing prompts, and interactive discussions with participants about their own writing practices. This workshop will focus its energy on the richly, complex act and art of bridging language and imagery.

Rachel Eliza Griffiths is a poet and photographer. She is the author of four books of poetry, most recently Lighting the Shadow. She teaches creative writing at Sarah Lawrence College and the Institute of American Indian Arts.
