Author of Writing Down the Bones…, Santa Fe, NM
Somewhere inside living the life of a poet, Judyth Hill grew the heart of a teacher.
When I first set her and a select crew of New Mexico poets and writers loose teaching the Writing down the Bones timed writing process, Judyth took all the tools and went for it. Anyone that has heard her read poems, or seen her teach her classes, knows her passion for and commitment to poetry and her students. She has developed teaching into a deep art. WildWriting: The Dharma of Poetry shares her fresh way of looking at writing, her wild exuberance and enthusiasm for students, for poetry, for keeping alive the lineage of Poetry. The practices and exercise of WildWriting will bring people to the page with original depth and guide writers to follow their own passions onto the page.
