The Fralin Museum of Art at the University of Virginia is hosting their annual writing program, Writer’s Eye, which invites everyone, from third graders to adults, to create original poetry and prose inspired by selected works in the Museum. You can visit the museum in-person this Fall, and submit your entry online by November 12th using the form on the museum website. Entries for grades three through eight are judged anonymously by panels of local teachers and writing professionals. Each year, two published writers from Virginia are invited to judge the high school and university/adult entries. First, second, and third-place winning entries are honored in an anthology of their works, among other winnings.

This year, they’ve selected eight works of art currently on view at the Fralin, and a community mural in the Woolen Mills by Federico Cuatlacuatl for entrants to write about.  You can find more information about Writer’s Eye, including the entry form, on their website.

The Fralin Museum of Art is a proud financial supporter of WNRN.
