Camp Wordier: The Art of Poetry/The Poetry of Art

9.00 12.00

Rob McCabe will discuss the nature of physical art and how writers can utilize the ekphrastic experience to create pieces of poetry and fiction. Using examples of ekphrastic writing, he'll offer students the opportunity to write their own works of ekphrastic experience from viewing and studying art samples.

McCabe is a recent graduate of the low-residency MFA program in creative writing at the University of Tampa. He writes poetry, fiction, plays, and screenplays, and in 2014, two of his screenplays, Absolution and Fixated, were made into two short films that were shown at the 2014 Sunscreen Film Festival in St. Petersburg, Florida. He is currently working on several projects including poetry chapbooks, a screenplay and reworking his novella and short story collection. In 2010, McCabe was awarded the MaThilDa Award from his alma mater, Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan.
