I35 Creativity Corridor
During the month of April, as spring spreads from south to north, Truck will drive I35 from Texas through Oklahoma, Kansas, Iowa, into Minnesota, with some short detours along the way.
Roll down the windows. You'll be treated to poetry and prose, to glimpses of people and places from the southern plains to the northern heartland, to snippets of the mapped spine of the U.S.
Inspired by poet Todd Fuller's vision of a creativity corridor marked by I35 where commerce is art and literature, where political borders dissolve, where the land rises up in the spirit and the word, this project will drive you places you didn't know you wanted to be.
Make sure you have room in your vehicles. Among the writers and artists hitching a ride will be Charles Alexander, Kyle Schlesinger, Cindy St. John, Hugh Tribbey, Timothy Bradford, Jeanetta Calhoun Mish, Grant Jenkins, Siobhán Scarry, Joe Harrington, Jim McCrary, Megan Kaminski, Spencer Selby, Robin Brox, mIEKAL aND, Jeff Hansen, and others.
Thanks in advance to Kyle Schlesinger, Jeanetta Calhoun Mish, Grant Jenkins, and Jeff Hansen for providing many of the vital coordinates for this drive.
