I’ll be cohosting a special event with poet Kathleen Ellis.
Young Maine poets read and discuss their unique perspectives.
Come hear the voices of young poets as they express their views of our world. The poets are University of Maine students active in campus creative writing activities and the campus literary magazine, The Open Field. Readings will be followed by a conversation among the poets facilitated by Kathleen Ellis and John Paul Caponigro, and Q&A from the audience. Poets reading will include Samuel Mills, Iris Lecates, Paige McHatten, Starla Straub, and Rachel Ouellette.
Join us for a special evening as Santa Fe Workshops’ Creativity Continues online with two master photographers, Jay Maisel in conversation with John Paul Caponigro.
In this special hour dedicated to savoring the sensual act of seeing, Jay will present a selection of his images and thoughts, followed by lively question and answer sessions, first with John Paul, then with special guests, and finally you. Bring your questions and something to take notes with; the insights will flow fast.
Jay Maisel is hailed as one of the most gifted photographers of all time. A hero and a teacher, countless photographers feel he changed and still changes the ways they see. He’s a living legend whose work is studied around the world and whose presentations garner standing ovations every time he takes the stage.

I will be cohosting (with Meg Weston) this event and reading my poetry with fellow Maine poets Kathleen Ellis, Gary Lawless, Iris LeCates, and Meghan Sterling in an intergenerational celebration of our place in nature.
Each poet will recommend a book, share a favorite poem by another poet, and read their poetry.
A lively Q&A with the audience is sure to follow so bring your burning questions.
Ecopoetry (a relatively new term) offers contemporary views of our complex interrelationships within nature, often exploring ways places influence culture. Sometimes celebratory and sometimes critical, ecopoetry looks closely at personal sensitivity and social change.

Over The Threshold – A Conversation On Creativity With John Paul Caponigro and Sean Kernan
During this inspiring hour, John Paul and Sean share images, thoughts, and provocations for themselves and viewers. A lively question and answer session brings this free program to completion.
At some point, all photographers sense their best and truest work lies at a point somewhere out beyond the threshold of their comfort. The question then becomes how to get there.
John Paul Caponigro and Sean Kernan, long-time friends, approach creativity in different ways, but they both head for the same transformative experience. During this conversation, they share personal stories of moments that changed their art and their lives. Meditation, playing music, acting, drawing, and writing are just a few of the practices they use to make room for the revelations that improvisation brings. They offer insights into moving beyond habitual practices and making space for the unknown, which is where the magic of the creative process happens.
