  • Ekphrastic Writing

“Language is social art” – Willard Van Orman Quine

How can you weave art and photography into your writing?  How can you use them to create and develop new material? This course will explore the art of Ekphrastic Writing. Ekphrasis means, ‘description’ in Greek.  Ekphrastic Writing focuses on works of art and interprets them so that they help you, the writer, in creating new narratives.

On this course we will be discovering the power of ekphrastic writing to develop our imaginations and writing.  Every week, you will respond to different visual material, in order to create new narratives. In short, we will use art to inspire the writing of prose or poetry, and welcome the unexpected, the hidden, and the surreal.

This course will be held at The Exchange in Twickenham and delivered to you by poet and creative writer Agnieszka Studzinska who has an MA in creative writing.

The full cost of this 8 week course is £160. For more info on this course please click here

  • Prose or Poetry

What’s the difference between a prose poem and a poem? Or a prose poem and a shorter narrative? How much of a poem is prose driven? How do we find the balance between prose and the poem?

Over this 8 week course we will explore these ideas and discuss them in a friendly and welcoming environment, along with reading different types of prose poems to inspire our own writing.  Feedback on writing will also be given.

This course will be held at The Exchange in Twickenham and delivered to you by poet and creative writer Agnieszka Studzinska who has an MA in creative writing
