Building on poet and translator Wendy Burk's interviews with trees in her book Tree Talks: Southern Arizona, participants will learn about some of the trees on campus via the UofL Tree Tour, discuss an excerpt from Tree Talks, then employ some of Burk's strategies as we interview, transcribe, and craft poems out of our own tree talks, prioritizing listening as a mode of creativity and creative intervention. Facilitator: Dr. Kristi Maxwell

Meet at the Ginkgo Tree (tree #9 on the Belknap Campus Tree Tour) on the Ekstrom Library West Lawn near 3rd St.
