Gunnison Valley Literary Festival:
Friday, August 9 – Sunday, August 11
Rooting Into Place
Friday, August 9
8 – 10 a.m.
Begin the weekend from an inspired and relaxed, open and connected place! Register and pick up your nametag, to-go pastries and coffee, then set out for the woods. We’ll initiate the day with a slow saunter in nature, sipping in the place we are, heightening our awareness and loosening up our creativity through readings of dreamy poetry and exploratory writing prompts. Root down in the forests and fields to discover this mountain environment’s both flagrant and nuanced personas. What is it trying to communicate? To teach? What metaphors lurk in its elements? Bring your reusable to go coffee mug and small backpack to carry a journal, writing utensil, water, breakfast pastries and a warm jacket (as mornings are cool). This is a saunter, so only flat soled footwear is required – flip flops are fine (just leave the stilettos at home)! With the Gunnison Valley Literary Festival.
