Chesapeake Bay Writers will host a writing workshop led by Nathan M. Richardson from 1:30-5 p.m. on Saturday, May 14, at James City County Library, 7770 Croaker Road, Williamsburg.
Richardson’s topic is “Ekphrastic writing,” that is, creative writing inspired by visual art. The program is open to the public free of charge. The group will meet in the library’s community room.
Richardson is an author, performance poet and Frederick Douglass historian. His poetry collections include “Likeness of Being,” “Twenty-one Imaginary T-shirts” and “The 7 Last Poems of an Unarmed Citizen.” His work has been widely republished in anthologies, magazines and newspapers, and he teaches a variety of workshops for emerging writers.
Richardson is also in the seventh year of The Frederick Douglass Speaking Tour. In this living history performance, he depicts the physical and spiritual essence of the former slave, writer, orator and abolitionist Frederick Douglass.
