T is going to talk about ekphrasis, writing based on or prompted by fine art, including my novel, Ten Types of Women, which will be out from Spinster’s Ink in late 2018. She will have an ekphrasis writing prompt. Folks who are coming bring along a copy of a visual artwork that they particularly love but that they haven’t written about. They can, of course, always look something up on their smart phones, and T will bring along some art books for resources as well.

See you tonight at The Book Lounge!
