I Could Have Been a Tree – Ekphrastic Writing Workshop with Marjorie Stanko

Sunday, 3/24/2024  2:00 PM-4:00 PM
Cost: $25
Location: Art Lab
We begin the workshop with a meditation to soften and awaken our senses as we walk through the exhibit “I Could Have Been A Tree Instead” and ponder the
question “What If We Were Trees?” While we wander and ponder, make note of what resonates, what dissonates, what harmonizes, what feels discordant. We will then retreat into the museum’s library on the 3 rd floor of the museum, where we’ll discuss the sensory, emotional, and metaphorical impact of the exhibit and the what ifs of being a tree. We will write to a series of prompts designed to focus your experience with, as, and of being trees.
Supplies required: Please bring a notebook or journal as well as a pen or two to write with. Participants are welcomed but not required to share their writing with the group.
Note: formal training, traditional poetry structures, and other technical approaches are NOT required. This workshop is for anyone who loves to write in any style or format.
