Event Description:

Linda Hogan reminds us of the visceral tug of bodies of water: “It’s just the place calls to me/ from inside,/ elemental yearning for element.” And this liquid wilderness—this “world undisturbed”—evokes in us a response. Join poet-dramatist Cindy Williams Gutiérrez and photographer Russell J. Young for an exploration of the Salmon River's natural habitat through poetry and photography. The focus of this interdisciplinary, collaborative workshop will be on seeing and responding.  You will begin with your emotional response to the landscape through photography and then respond to someone else’s photograph through poetry, and so on. Over the two days, you will move organically between the two art forms, inspiring and being inspired.
