Ekphrastic Poetry Workshop with Santa Fe Poet Laureate Emeritus Valerie Martinez & Dr. Shelle Sanchez
Ekphrasis (also spelled “echprasis”) is a direct transcription from the Greek ek, “out of,” and phrasis, “speech” or “expression.” Ekphrastic writing is poetry/prose that comments upon another art form, e.g., a poem about a photograph or a novel about a film.
Thank you Val and Shelle for giving our students the experience of a lifetime.
