Workshop: Writing Poetry about the Natural World
Writing Poetry about the Natural World
Environmentalism has always been alive in poetry, and the recent rise of eco-poetics has brought new focus, as more and more poets attune their skills in celebration, embrace, and elegy of the natural world. What makes a good description in poetry? How does a poet observe the world and look inward simultaneously? Come learn more about writing poems that encompass the natural world and get a contemporary anthology of wonderful poems about the flora and fauna of our Southern Appalachian region.
Workshop with Cathryn Hankla, Hollins professor of English & Creative Writing, editor, and author of nine books of poetry, including Galaxies, and Great Bear
Admission is $35 and includes a copy of the book A Literary Field Guide to Southern Appalachia.
