“Deep Mapping” With Kali Fajardo-Anstine

Kali Fajardo-Anstine

March 7-8, 2018

We are excited to bring Colorado fiction writer Kali Fajardo-Anstine to our community in March as part of a collaboration with Teton County Library and Teton Literacy Center. The programs are made possible by a ThinkWY grant from the Wyoming Humanities Council.

Kali’s two-day visit begins with a writing workshop, “Deep Mapping,” from 6-8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 7, in the conference room at the Center for the Arts. Participants will read a short story by Latina author Sandra Cisneros (copies provided in advance so preregistration by March 1 highly recommended) and then discuss the themes and their impacts on communities and individuals. The discussion will move into generative writing based loosely on William Least Heat Moon’s Blue Highways as a model for “deep mapping” of a story, whether fictional or not, whether eventually morphed into a poem. This workshop is geared toward high school age students and adults writing in English. Prepaid, online registration is $25.  (If you send a check to JHW, PO Box 1974, Jackson, WY 83001, it must be received by March 1.) The workshop is limited to 12 people. Register Here.
