Poets on Paintings

Past event

Fancy yourself as a poet, but unsure where to start? Cue the ekphrastic poem! Art and poetry combine in QUT Literary Salon's intimate workshop, where you will write and read a poem exploring an artwork of your choice featured in the exhibition Anne Wallace: Strange Ways. Be guided through the process of interpretation, analysis, and presentation of your poetry piece as you draw on the tense and mysterious narratives of Wallace's works.

Suitable for ages from 16 years +. This program is part of QUT O-week.

About QUT Literary Salon

The QUT Literary Salon is an independent, student-run organisation that focuses on bringing the university's up-and-coming writers into the local writing spotlight. The Salon – with its distinctive emphasis on pairing emerging student work with that of established writers – regularly collaborates with major industry publications and festivals, and serves as a vital community-building space where student cohorts from different years and degrees mingle, collaborate and perform their work, in the company of established writers.
