Join Mathew Weitman for a workshop to explore the hermit traditions of Ancient Chinese poets during the Tang Dynasty. From the wilderness of Han Shan and Wang Wei, the daily toils of Wei Ying-Wu and Stone House, and the friendship of Li Po and Tu Fu, we will examine how a life of solitude can inform the creative process. 

After focusing on the translations of these poets by Washington State's very own Bill Porter (Red Pine), we will discuss how the hermit tradition and natural world can inform our own creative practice.
