An Ekphrastic Poetry Experience. Poets, join
us for this one of a kind contest, based on Allen Ginsberg’s famous
phrase “First thought best thought” which described the Beat poets’ love
for spontaneity and immediacy in the arts. You are invited to
contemplate artwork by the featured artists at Rockstar gallery and to
write a poem in response to one of the pieces. Yes, you will turn down
your inner editor and tune in to what the art says to you in the moment.
Poets will have one hour to pen an ekphrastic poem, which they will
read to an audience of listeners, posting their poem beside the piece
that inspired it. The audience will then vote on their favorite poem of
the evening. Editing is overrated! It is time to just combust!
