Foundlings Press is partnering with Artpark to welcome nine poets and writers as the inaugural class of a new literary “mini-residency” program. Participants in this generative residency will spend a day or more at Artpark in Lewiston, New York, taking in the site’s 150 acres of natural beauty, dramatic views of the Niagara River and Gorge, and ambitious schedule of arts programming ranging from a hot air balloon escape act to a workshop in translating the language of trees. Some writers will also give performances or teach workshops while in the area.
The workshop series will begin on June 27 at 7:30 p.m. on the Artpark Emerald Grove stage with Sensing Resonance, a participatory performance by Cynthia Pegado, longtime Land Conservancy member and poet Robert Giannetti, and saxophonist Patrick Perez, involving audience prompts and an artist Q&A.
