The Mark Twain House & Museum, Workshop

June 21 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

In this generative poetry session guided by poet and master teaching artist Victoria Nordlund, participants will create poetry as they write in the library of the Mark Twain House on the longest, brightest day of the year. 

Welcoming writers of all levels, the workshop promises an enjoyable exploration of Ekphrasis poetry, weaving words and imagery to articulate emotional experiences and subject matter inspired by the objects and art in Mark Twain House, and by the house itself. From haiku suites, to free verse, to concrete poetry, the workshop encourages the convergence of visual and poetic expressions, fostering a supportive and dynamic environment. Tickets are $40 per person/$35 for members. Purchase tickets here.
