Craft Talk

Out of the Frying Pan, Onto the Page: Poetics & the Culinary Arts

Adam J. Gellings

In the words of author and journalist Bill Buford, "What happens around the table is about intimacy, creativity, appetite, desire, euphoria, culture and the joys of being alive." These same ingredients apply to writing poetry. This craft talk examines the basics of place—what grows here & what doesn't grow there— good food tastes of itself. Good poetry captures the ordinary & makes it profound.
