Fairy Tales and Surreal Spaces: A Writing Workshop with Lauren Camp

Apr 29, 2011 At SITE Santa Fe

Friday, April 29 5-7 PM
Saturday, April 30 10AM-noon

This free 2-day workshop encourages participants to explore and reflect upon the enigmatic works on view as part of the current three-woman show at SITE Santa Fe. Through poetry and fable-writing, we’ll have the chance to go deeper into the puzzling painted and sculptural worlds of artists Amy Cutler, Ruth Claxton, and Runa Islam. After a brief overview of the women’s processes, and some fantastic examples of writing, we’ll start playing with our own imaginations, finding colorful ways to write about such kooky, remarkable places, and interior states as we see in the galleries.

Lauren Camp teaches creative writing at the Southwest Literary Center, art museums and writers’ conferences. She has published a book of poems, This Business of Wisdom (West End Press, 2010), and is working on her second collection, an epic poem entitled One Hundred Hungers. She is also an accomplished visual artist and a radio host for KSFR – Santa Fe Public Radio. A recent guest editor for World Literature Today, her poems have appeared in numerous journals and anthologies.

The workshop is limited to 15 participants.
