Out of the Frying Pan, Onto the Page: Poetics & the Culinary Arts

In the words of author and journalist Bill Buford, "What happens around the table is about intimacy, creativity, appetite, desire, euphoria, culture and the joys of being alive." These same ingredients apply to writing poetry. This craft talk examines the basics of place—what grows here & what doesn't grow there— good food tastes of itself. Good poetry captures the ordinary & makes it profound.

Instructor: Adam J. Gellings is the author of the poetry collection Little Palace (Stephen F. Austin State University Press) & his poems have appeared in the Academy of American Poets Poem-a-Day, Copper Nickel, The Louisville Review, Willow Springs & elsewhere. He lives in Columbus, Ohio & teaches at the low-residency MFA program at Ashland University.
