Getting correspondence going about features for the Poets and Writers Picnic, August 23. So far a couple of yesses...
- Gary Brower, Placitas, Duende poetry series organizer (see Jan 2007 article in the the Sandoval Signpost), featured at PWP a couple of years ago, and
- my perennial favorite Todd Moore have both confirmed.
- Miriam Sagan from Santa Fe said yes to featuring at PWP - you can find nice info on her at the Tres Chicas Books website.
We'll look more at the schedule for where to put your plogging tutorial - all will become clear I'm sure, it is still pretty early on.
Heard back from Miriam Sagan. She will guest teach a Friday afternoon plein air session. We'll drive out to The Land and spend a couple hours there. She has been doing a residency and we'll see her installation plus do some of our own writing. She's a gifted, up-beat teacher.
Another good piece of news for the PWP. Our dynamic duo of musicians, Bud and Jessica aka The Blue Rose Ramblers will be back. So pleased with how they performed last year. You could describe their music as Contemporary Cowboy. They are young, talented, nice people and fun to listen to.
Ed Note: so much for gettting Dale on as guest contributor for original posting to eliminate the middle (wo)man, e.g. me. I'm still working on it...
Also please note - the MMAC website is recently updated and now lists Sunflower Festival information (albeit nothing about us - but I sent a reminder, in hope of prompt redress. The March MMAC Newletter is also available online and in hard copy at Cibola Arts gallery (site unfortunately still woefully update-challenged) in Mountainair (just down from PO)
