Join us in rural community conversations that invite us to think, question & connect. Each discussion features a guest scholar and is inspired by the relationships between the natural environment and the human experience. This week, Johnny Horton will be joining us to speak to Salvation in Surrender: Literary and Historical Definitions of the Currency We Trade for Land.
National Poetry Series finalist Johnny Horton lives in Seattle where he teaches English at Seattle Central College, poetry at Richard Hugo House, and literature in the Clemente Course in the Humanities. Horton's been the recipient of a Washington Artist Trust GAP grant and he's published poems in several magazines including Poetry Northwest, Los Angeles Review, CutBank, Willow Springs, Notre Dame Review, Horsethief, Scoundrel Time, and City Arts Magazine. From 2009-2018, he co-directed the University of Washington's creative writing program in Rome. He loves developing talks that unite poetry and history into the single goal of learning how to appreciate.
