Find Your Hidden Poet with David Cope, at Meijer Gardens

Senior English professor and Grand Rapids Poet Laureate David Cope will conduct a workshop entitled “Find Your Hidden Poet” at Meijer Gardens on Saturday, February 16, from 1-3 p.m. Cope’s workshop involves teaching the art of ekphrasis (writing poetry with artwork as the subject or source of inspiration) as part of the Hanneke Beaumont sculpture exhibit at the Gardens. Explore the exhibit with David, then “translate your observations and perceptions into poems using free association, word choice, phrasing and editing.” The fee is $10 for members and $17 for non-members, and there are still openings.
