Writer's Eye 2022
Now in its 36th year, Writer’s Eye challenges writers of all ages to use visual art in The Fralin as inspiration for the creation of original poetry and prose. This annual ekphrastic writing program—introduced by docents Carole Armstrong and Valerie Morris in 1986—has become the museum’s flagship educational offering.
High School Creative Writing Workshop | October 22
Join us for a two-part High School Creative Writing Workshop on Saturday, October 22 at the museum. Led by UVA Creative Writing instructors and Fralin educators, writers will draft original poetry or prose inspired by the Writer’s Eye 2022 selections (Part One) and then, focus on the revision process (Part Two). Part One is from 11 am - 12:15 pm, and Part Two is from 1-2:15 pm. Lunch will be provided for all participants from 12:15-1pm. Students are encouraged to stay for both sessions or choose one of the two based on where they are in the writing process. Participants who are only joining for Part Two will need to bring a working draft. The workshop is free, but registration is required.
