For the fourth season, award-winning poet and professor Marilyn Kallet led her popular workshop O Taste and See: Writing the Senses in Deep France at VCCA's Moulin à Nef in Auvillar. For 7 days and 8 nights in May, participants explored the language of poetry, inspired by the sensory delights of Southwest France.
The workshop included a visit to the open-air market in Valence d'Agen as well as photography and cooking demonstrations with professional photographer and journalist Christophe Gardner, who is also a gourmet chef.
