Starting an Ecopoetry Writing Practice– Spring 2022

Poetry with an ecological message has gotten more recognition and even occupies its own subgenre — ecopoetry. In this six-week class we will examine ecopoetry from several angles. We’ll define ecopoetry, and read ecopoems from poets including Camille Dungy, Nickole Brown, W.S. Merwin, and Matthew Olzmann. You’ll write your own ecopoems and start your own ecopoetry journal that you can draw or paint in, keep pictures in, and take important notes in.

The class is designed to appeal to all levels — from beginning to advanced — but participants should be willing to read and discuss poetry that can be challenging and involve critical analysis.

Linda Bryant is a widely published journalist and poet who owns and operates Owsley Fork Writers Sanctuary in Berea, KY. [ALL LEVELS]
