Bridgehampton High School students in Tom House’s English classes had a unique educational opportunity when they toured the Watermill Center and wrote original poetry inspired by the Center’s comprehensive collection of artworks.

Their creative works are now a part of an electronic book called “Ekphrastic Poems,” published on the district website and the Watermill Center website. A limited number of printed copies will be available for purchase, with proceeds to benefit the new Bridgehampton Literary Arts Club. The club will help facilitate student participation in the nationally acclaimed Poetry Out Loud program and is embarking on the ambitious endeavor of collecting student work in literary magazines, of which “Ekphrastic Poems” is a preview.
