Drawing Out the Poet: Visual Art in the Writing Workshop

Scheduled Room: Room 2A, Washington State Convention Center, Level 2

Drawing Out the Poet: Visual Art in the Writing Workshop. (Matthew Burgess, Joanna Fuhrman, Thomas Devaney, Sara Jane Stoner, Abraham Avnisan) A Grecian Urn set Keats’s imagination in motion, and Brancusi’s golden bird triggered Mina Loy’s flight of words. Writing in response to visual art and incorporating visual media into our poetic practice engages the imagination in exciting ways: it can quicken our attention, free us of familiar modes, and stimulate some of our best work. The poet-teachers on this panel examine the role of visual art in their own practice, and they share innovative techniques for inspiring student writing.

Berl's Brooklyn Poetry Shop

126A Front Street, Brooklyn, New York 11201

In Joanna Fuhrman’s and Toni Simon’s mixed-media literary project, Egyptian gods, stripped of their context and role, wander various New York City (mainly Brooklyn) neighborhoods trying to figure out where they belong, how to make sense of what they have lost, and how to get along with one another. Joanna Fuhrman writes poems in response to the photographs. The artists have created several series of photo/poem combinations in Chinatown, the Reversible Destiny Studio, Park Slope, Windsor Terrace, Gowanus and Red Hook.
