Class Visitors

We've been fortunate to have three class visitors, Aimee Bender, Carrie Purcell, and Allison Benis White. Aimee talked about "practice," as in our course's title--particularly about getting to her writing work every day. (She writes five days a week, two hours a day.) Carrie Purcell talked to us about an amazing art/music/poetry project, called Formal Inquiry, she's putting together for a weekend of performances in June in Seattle. Would that we could take our entire class on a field trip there! And yesterday, Allison Benis White came and talked with us about the poems she's made using Degas paintings as a "way in." We have more visitors yet to come, which is exciting, but so far it's been a feast.
