Poetry in the Elements: Eco-Poetry through Earth, Air, Water, & Fire

Earth, air, fire, and water can form a foundation for writing poetry addressing climate change and climate crisis. In each session, we will engage with an element through focused class discussion, time to write a draft of a poem, and sharing those drafts with each other. Writers including Kimmerer, Roberson, Gander, and Perez, plus media from activist artists, will guide us as we write poems of response, compassion, and connection to history, both personal and public.
