Writing Poems in a Burning World

Ecopoetry refers to poetry which thinks of the natural world as an ecology of relationships between the human and the more than human. It views nature as neither romantic backdrop or scenery, nor as mere extension of human thought, purchase, or ambition. In this course, we’ll read a selection of works by poets using the power of language to name, archive, and make visible–as they write to explore questions about how to inhabit this world in a time of rapid change and climate crisis. We will write and revise our own original poems as meditations on this urgent theme.

Please note: This class or event is hybrid. Some attendees will be in-person and some will attend online. There may be a limited number of in-person seats available. If you are participating online (using Zoom or a similar live platform), students or attendees should have a stable internet connection. Class participants: you should have a computer or device with a webcam and microphone; and your Zoom link will be automatically sent to you after you register.
