Ama Codjoe is the Gary Stonum Writer in Residence at Case Western Reserve University this spring. As a benefit to the community, she will be leading a free writing workshop at Literary Cleveland on Tuesday, February 27 from 5-6pm (limited to 20 participants).

In this generative workshop, participants will discuss ekphrastic writing: writing about art. Together we will engage in close reading and close looking.
