ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR:
Lisa Huffaker is a multi-dimensional artist whose work encompasses music, poetry, and visual art, and interweaves them all in performance. Her primary background is in classical singing.

Lisa is also an accomplished poet: since winning the Morton Marr Poetry prize in 2008, her poetry has been published in Southwest Review, Poet Lore, Southern Poetry Review, Measure, Able Muse, Mezzo Cammin, The Texas Observer and Southern Humanities Review, which recently nominated her for the Pushcart Prize. Lisa has taught creative writing with the Writer’s Garret since 2010, where she creates an ongoing series of art-inspired creative adventures at the Nasher Sculpture Center, as well as a Zine Camp in collaboration with Oil and Cotton, which  won a “Best of Dallas” award from The Dallas Observer in 2012.
