In 2002, I began a collection of visual and audio work about women. The series,
entitled "Flinch: A Study of Your Self," will be on display at the Harwood Art Center in Albuquerque from
March 6th to 27th. The visual images in this Broadside represent some of the works from that series. To learn more
about "Flinch," visit www.flinch-art.info.
Both Santa Fe and
Albuquerque have defined March as Women & Creativity Month. To celebrate, I asked other women poets to help create
this issue of the Santa Fe Poetry Broadside. Thanks to Ann, Judith and Mary for offering up even more facets of
our gender.Lauren Camp
