Confirming too the Sunflower Poetry Workshop, August 21-23. Details, brochure and registration information forthcoming. In the meantime, check the PWP page for pictures, description and brochure from the 2007 and 2006 workshops.
As in previous years, PWP runs concurrent with the Mountainair Sunflower Festival (or whatever it is called in any given year... sunflowers remain a constant), put on by the Manzano Mountain Arts Council (MMAC). Activities include (but may or may not be limited to) art exhibits an crafts fair at the Dr Saul Community Center, a sunflower hat contest and a chili cook-off. For more information contact Ray Terhorst or Kristine Lauritsen. When MMAC has more details and/or puts a Sunflower page on its website, I'll post it here. Until then, preview 2008 by checking out past sunflowerings.
