Installations and Inspirations: Ekphrastic Poetry & Prose

Ekphrastic Poetry

1 PM, Saturday, October 15

Writers of all experience levels are invited to spend an afternoon at the Rockpile Museum learning about and exploring ekphrasis writing—creating prose and poetry inspired by images and objects—in a fun, informal, informative atmosphere. Participants will discover how visual prompts found in the museum’s exhibits can make history come alive. The event is sponsored by the Rockpile Museum Association; admission fees will be waived for the afternoon. Members of Prairie Pens local writing group will be on hand to share in the writing event and to offer assistance and encouragement if needed. For more information contact Don Oakley at
