Appalachian Mountain Hug

We're getting ready for the next Art on Cullers Run event in Mathias, WVA! 

This will be my fifth year joining as poet-in-residence. We've had a community-generated poem by visitors to my tent on each occasion, and it's a highlight of the year for me. Poetry as a patchwork quilt, you could say, where I'm the seamstress putting together other people's phrases thematically. This can't be done virtually––the in-person experience of the event, the location, the arts, and conversation becomes the "fabric" of a poem. 

"Art on Cullers Run 2024," surrounded by the Appalachian Mountains, is about a two hour drive from Washington, DC. See you there?
