Event Description

Like cooking, writing
is the process of pulling together raw ingredients with inspiration to create a
finished work of art. Food and rituals associated with it can bring powerful
emotions and can inspire strong writing. Jules will speak about how to use food
as a metaphor through readings and writing examples that will draw upon
cultural images toward food, rituals and preparation, gender, politics, body
image, and hunger. You will gain ideas for your own writing using food as
metaphor, whether it is fiction, poetry, creative
nonfiction or memoir and a bit of insight on your own appetites.




Jules Nyquist lives in Albuquerque and is the
creator of the Poetry Playhouse, a place for poetry, visiting poets, workshops
and play. She received her MFA from Bennington College, VT and her poetry
collection, Appetites, (Beatlick Press) was a finalist in the 2012 New
Mexico/Arizona Book Awards. Her next book of poems is entitled Behind the
Volcanoes.
