In recognition of April as Poetry Month, Robert L. Dean, Jr. and Roy Beckemeyer, both D5 members, will present a program on Ekphrastics: Creative Writing in Response to Art. Both writers have had ekphrastic poetry and prose pieces published. They will discuss ekphrastic writing and how they each approach it. They will read and show examples of their work and that of other writers and will conduct an ekphrastic writing exercise.
