Ticketing Information
Event Information

Experience art at a new level and use it to inspire your writing! Acclaimed poet Jodie Hollander teaches this workshop, in which participants respond poetically to exhibitions in the Hilbert Museum. You will study examples of celebrated poems that respond to or were inspired by art. Then you'll be led through a variety of writing activities inspired by the art in the museum, ultimately leading to a draft of an original poem. Students will discuss poetic techniques such as meter, the use of vivid imagery, the importance of sonics, how to shape a poetic line as well as techniques for drafting and revision. No experience necessary!


Jodie Hollander was raised in a family of classical musicians. She studied poetry in England, and her work has been published in journals such as The Poetry Review, The Yale Review, PN Review, The Dark Horse, The Rialto, Verse Daily, The New Criterion, Australia’s Best Poems of 2011, and Australia’s Best Poems of 2015. Her debut full-length collection, My Dark Horses, is published with Liverpool University Press in the UK and Oxford University Press in the US. Hollander is the recipient of a Fulbright Fellowship in South Africa, a Hawthornden Fellowship, a National Endowment for the Humanities Grant in Italy, and a MacDowell Colony Fellowship. She currently lives in Colorado.
