Portrayals of artists as moody, solitary, eccentric and impoverished are a familiar stereotype that traces its roots to the 1500s. Even in the 19th century, the image of bohemian artists serially evicted from drafty Parisian garrets persists. Artist Jane Richlovsky shares her own story of artist displacement, upending the myth, using it as a catalyst for a discussion about how artists and their communities might write a new story together.

An astounding documentary on Jim Harrison, an American writer known for his poetry, fiction, reviews, essays about the outdoors, and writings about food. Described as "a force of nature,” his work has been compared to that of William Faulkner and Ernest Hemingway. Poet and critic Richard Tillinghast declared in TheNew York Times that “Mr. Harrison has few equals as a writer on outdoor life, the traditional heritage and proving ground of the American male.” 

The film follows Snyder and novelist Jim Harrison (Dalva, Legends of the Fall), as the two old friends wander along trails of the central California coast in a remote area untouched for centuries. They debate the pros and cons of everything from Google to Zen koans. Archival materials and commentaries from Snyder’s literary contemporaries, friends, and intimates punctuate the discussions.

Poetry Intensive: Working in a Series with Holly Wren Spaulding

Have you ever wanted to take an individual poem or idea and turn it into something more? A sequence or series maybe even a book-length project? Working in this mode offers a pathway to bigger poems, bigger projects, and the kinds of surprises, detours, and breakthroughs that propel us beyond the known realm of single poems, written one at a time.

In this generative workshop, we'll consider a variety of inspiring examples of book forms on display at BIMA, and begin at least two series or sequences of our own, using book-forms to inspire our work. Readings will include selections from by Lorine Niedecker, Kimiko Hahn, Jim Moore, Thomas A. Clark, Harryette Mullen, and others.

This intensive workshop is ideal for writers who have been reading and writing poetry for a while, and want to push their work into a more ambitious territory, however, we welcome those with an earnest interest in the creative process, and anyone ready to write a multi-part poem during a day at the museum.

Instructor Bio:
Holly Wren Spaulding's poems, articles, and reviews have appeared in The New York Times, The Nation, Michigan Quarterly Review, Witness, The Ecologist, and in the book We Are Everywhere: The Irresistible Rise of Global Anti-Capitalism (Verso, 2003). Alice Greene & Co. published IF August in 2017, and Pilgrim, in 2014. A passionate collaborator, teacher, editor, and writer, Ms. Spaulding has been awarded residencies at The Mesa Refuge, Blue Mountain Center, The Millay Colony for the Arts, The Hill House, The Jean Noble Parsons Center for the Study of Art & Science, Arrowmont School of Arts & Crafts, and the Leelanau Cultural Center, where she was the 2017 Ann Hall Artist in Residence. She founded Poetry Forge in 2012 and teaches creative writing for Interlochen College of Creative Arts.
