Hedgebrook Salon at SAM with Amy Wheeler and Susan Rich




Frida Kahlo at the Seattle Art Museum


I'm honored to be teaching a poetry writing workshop at the Seattle Art Museum in support of Hedgebrook on Saturday, January 12th from 1 - 6 pm. This workshop is open to all lovers of art and poetry ages 14 and up. The show  Elle: Women Artists from the Centre Pompidou is the inspiration for this salon. Hedgebrook Director Amy Wheeler will also lead a workshop on writing plays and visual art. Writing inspired by visual art is a tradition that begins in Greece, the word "ekphrastic" literally meaning to speak out. Included in the price is a free ticket to see the show as well as a reception. Oh yes, you will also be supporting one of the best writing residencies in the country. 

Information on registering via Hedgebrook included below.
