Writing In Nature with Lisa Huffaker
November 4 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm CDT
Fall is an endlessly evocative time, a season ripe with inspiration for poetry, essays, and stories. Join Teaching Artist in residence Lisa Huffaker for a nature walk of observation, reflection and sensory experience, then return to The Garret to write and share your experiences with the group.
Note: Writing In Nature will include moving through areas that are sometimes minimally affected by the conditions of the weather, and uneven surfaces. The walk and workshop will take place rain or shine (severe weather excluded).
Lisa Huffaker creates poetry, collage, and assemblage. A finalist for Dallas’ Poet Laureate, she is a frequent visiting artist at the Nasher Sculpture Center, a recent C3 Visiting Artist at the Dallas Museum of Art, and creator of White Rock Zine Machine, a micropublishing project offering artist’s books through sculptural vending machines. Her poetry appears or is forthcoming in 32 Poems, Diode, Spillway, THRUSH, Tupelo Quarterly, and elsewhere. Her multimedia installation, Code Room, is currently on view at Ro2 Art. Her book in progress, a collage/erasure transformation of an antifeminist marriage manual written in 1963, was recently featured at TU Delft and Cornell Tech’s 3rd Workshop on Obfuscation.
