Campus has never looked prettier! Chic new furniture, colorful tile, and cool sculptures of books set in the earth to the north of campus center. No titles on these books–time to start writing your own! There are a few classes with openings. Check out the opportunity to work with Daniel Kilpatrick in Poetry. Andy Lovato is teaching Memoir–he is very well published in the field and has a great emphasis on process. Of special interest is Shuli Lamden’s “Writing on Location.” This location is the Santa Fe Farmer’s Market! Expect lots of writing, a bit of new journalism, research, sustainable agriculture and LOTS of produce!
My classes are full–the computer may show some spaces in portfolio and lit mag but sorry to say everything is actually full up. Thinking about the future–no firm promises–but we are investigating intermediate poetry. I know lots of folks are interested. Any thoughts as to the focus of a potential syllabus?
SANTA FE LITERARY REVIEW is running just a bit late. The final proofs look terrific. I expect to have copies in hand by the start of classes. And then we’ll set up a date for the launch and reading. Copies are free, available at Liberal Arts and Core Studies and around campus.
The poetry posts are open to submissions and ideas. Soon students will be curating, but if you’ve got an idea for ten “pages” do tell me. All I need is 10 poems in 9 X 11 paper.
