Steamboat Art Museum with support from Ski Town Media and Off the Beaten Path Bookstore, invites all writers to participate in the 2022 ekphrastic writing event.

*Ekphrasis is the use of words to comment on a piece of visual art. One of the earliest cited forms of ekphrasis occurs in The Iliad, where Homer provides a long and discursive account of the elaborate scenes embossed on the shield of Achilles.
