Day 13
Visual Poetry

One of the organizers of this festival, Adrian Arias, is a talented and prolific artist, poet, photographer, painter, drawer and father. He has taken poetry to all-encompassing route that can include language, photography, drawing, and even homemade ceviche (as some of you may recall from past readings).
