From the desk of Kathie Giorgio, Director, AllWriters' Workplace & Workshop LLC:
WAUKESHA – Need inspiration for new poems? Look no further than your favorite things! Paintings, photographs, pottery, music, and other art forms offer the details and vision to provide just what you are looking for. AllWriters’ Workplace & Workshop welcomes special guest lecturer MARGARET ROZGA with her workshop, WRITING EKPHRASTIC POEMS.
In this class, you’ll discuss the work of poets who provide a range of ekphrastic models and look at images in a variety of styles before drafting poems inspired by those images. You’ll consider how your own drafts respond to the art and to those models, and where your work explores productive new ground. The possibilities are endless! Though not required, participants are encouraged to bring a piece of visual art or a recording of music, to inspire themselves and others.
MARGARET ROZGA is a poet, playwright and professor emerita of English at UW Waukesha. She has published three books and was awarded a Creative and Performing Artists and Writers Fellowship by the American Antiquarian Society. Her poems have appeared in Nimrod, Burdock, New Verse News, Extract(s) and other journals. A Pushcart Prize nominee, Dr. Rozga also enjoys creating in concert and her work has appeared in many arenas, including a collaborative exhibit at the Ukrainian Museum of Modern Art in Chicago.

Celebrity Saturdays are a great chance to broaden your knowledge of what it takes to be successful and to learn from writers who are already knee deep in an author’s life. Margaret Rozga’s workshop will be held on Saturday, September 12th, 2015. This event runs from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and costs $85, which includes a lunch catered by Waukesha’s own Café de Art.
