Voices in the Forest is a poetry-in-the-parks project conceived of and curated by Shoreline Public Art Coordinator Dr. David Francis for visitors to urban parks and forests throughout the City of Shoreline, WA. Shoreline is located on the northern border of Seattle. The poetry also lives online as text and audio in multiple languages. Join several of the poets (Raùl Sanchez, Hop Nguyen, and Prof. Anne Beffel) with Professor Carlos M. Amador for a livestreamed interview with the project curator and a reading of a group of poems seemingly about the same subject: a lone willow tree at the edge of a meadow that each writer examined from their unique perspective. Their shared subject matter will allow us to compare and contrast our experiences, creative processes, and our resulting poems. Studio for Here and Now, where Anne Beffel will be conducting the livestream event, is located across from WMTU in Wadsworth Hall.
