Poetry has a long relationship with the natural world. In this Fieldwork Session, poet Juliana Spahr will elucidate these corollaries by guiding participants in writing next to and out of various data sets about the Headlands: lists of native and invasive plants, lists of weather patterns, histories of the area, etc. Collaboratively, the group will work to shape these writings into something literary through additional prompts and exercises, direct observation, and a short hike. Spahr has called this field-poetry, but what gets written can be any genre, and will resemble a dialogue between all participants, and the environmental and atmospheric surroundings.
