Writing Workshop with Annaliese Jakimides
Award-winning writer Annaliese Jakimides will teach a writing workshop at the Wendell Gilley Museum on Saturday, September 9 from 9am to noon. This workshop is designed to help you unlock your creativity and leave with some works in progress—and to have some fun along the way. Get inspired by pieces from the museum's permanent collection, and a new winter exhibition featuring sculpture by Rebekah Raye, woodblock prints by Andrea Rich, linocuts by Sherrie York, and striking lithographs by Carroll Sargent Tyson. This event is in person and costs $20 for museum members and $25 non-
members. Space is limited and registration is required. Sign up at www.wendellgilleymuseum.org/events.
Jakimides will provide some background about this type of writing — ekphrastic writing — plus techniques, and prompts to get you going. But ultimately you choose your path. Ekphrastic writing can be analytical, deep and playful—but more than anything, Jakimides notes, “it provides an endless stream of possible entries into writing.” “I love the way ekphrastic writing opens doors I didn’t see,” she says.
