The Pilgrimage of Poetry
Saturday, October 21 ~ 10:30 – 12:30
On Saturday, October 21, Fulbright Fellowship poet Anna Elkins will speak at Writers Forum. This program will include optional audience participation with writing exercises throughout.
Elkins introduces her topic with a quote from Richard R. Nebuhr: Pilgrims are poets who create by taking journeys. She describes her presentation as follows: “What is the difference between see and seek? What is the quest at the heart of the question? This session will explore where writing takes us by delving beneath our surface impressions to the underglimmers, the spirit-aquifers, and the paths of the heart. It is there—deep into the interior roads—where we make pilgrimage to the sacred with our words.”
Anna Elkins is a traveling poet and painter. She earned a BA in art and English and an MFA and Fulbright Fellowship in poetry. Anna has written, painted, and taught on six continents. Her art hangs on walls around the world, and she has published four books, including the poetry collection, The Space Between. Anna lives with her easel and writing desk in the mythical State of Jefferson. http://www.annaelkins.com
