Speak for the Trees: Ecopoetics (Now Online)

Please note: This class will now have online meetings. Your teacher will contact you with information on how to join the online classroom. To participate, students must have a stable internet connection with a computer or device with a webcam and microphone.

Come speak for the trees, the gulls and frogs. Write of tides and seasons, the saved and soon lost, and the necessary beauty that still exists in a much-misused world. Ecopoetics places the human experience alongside the horseshoe crab’s, giving equal weight to each. It refuses to “other” the non-human and demands that a salamander’s right to exist be acknowledged and praised. In this moment of peril, as our natural systems careen toward chaos, the ecopoetic perspective provides a path forward toward a renewed narrative about our place on this planet. Come unearth the words you have to make the poems we need to survive.
