The Nassau Literary Review is pleased to announce that we will be hosting a trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City! The trip is for writers and poets who would like to create a work of ekphrasis, which is a literary work whose subject is a work of visual art. On a first-come-first-serve basis, we invite 20 poets to join us on an paid trip (i.e. we’ll cover the travel/admission costs) to the museum, where they will pick out a work of art and write a work of ekphrasis about it. Make sure to bring a notebook, as it’ll be a working trip!
Writers will have a few days to edit their work if they choose. Then we will collect the various pieces, and the best ones will be chosen to be a part of the centerpiece of the Fall 2013 Issue of the Nassau Literary Review!
The trip will be on WEDNESDAY, MAY 8th – we will meet at the Dinky at 11:00 AM that morning. If you are interested in joining us, RSVP by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org – but be quick about it, because there are only 20 slots for the trip!
