Dora joins twenty artists and poets from across the country responding to one or more of the natural elements, including water, light, shadow and stone, with her original poem written for this event: Elemental: The Voices I Heed.

Created by poet Tricia DuBois and sponsored by 3: A Taos Press, and its owner, Andrea Watson, is an inaugural event.
