Fee: $15/ $10 members (includes a copy of the Oxeye Press edition made for this event)

Join Chuck Stebelton and Renato Umali for a birdwalk, earlier that morning, 8:30 am-10 am.

Led by Oxeye Press poets, including poet and teacher Richard Meier and publisher, printer and poet Jordan Dunn, participants will discuss walking and a poetics of presence at the place of inscription. We’ll explore the ways walking and writing participate in the Lynden Sculpture Garden as a natural space and a site for making. Following a discussion of poets and texts and artists associated with these ideas, participants will walk and write in the garden. Selections from the writings of participants will be combined into a single walk and printed in a limited edition by Oxeye Press.
