Ecopoetry as Connection

Ecopoetry as Connection

July 1, 2023
Explore ecopoetry that wakes you up and gets you writing. Begin new writing, connect with healing words, and share your poetry or prose.

What is ecopoetry? We will be exploring contemporary poems since there are new poems emerging every month that warrant our attention.

During this two-hour workshop, we will begin by reading a few poems that serve as prayers and grievances. After that, get ready for our first writing prompt followed by an opportunity to share and reflect. Midway through, we will have a short break before our conversation on ecopoetry as the act of naming relationships, followed by a second writing prompt and share circle.

This workshop is perfect for writers of any level and genre who want to practice their craft and read exciting poems by Major Jackson, current US Poet Laureate, Ada Limón, Linda Hogan, and more.

Allie Rigby is a San Francisco Bay Area poet and educator. In 2022, she accepted a year-long Fulbright grant to teach creative writing to university students in Romania. Her manuscript Moonscape for a Child debuts in 2023 from Bored Wolves.
