Speak Beauty to Power

Earth calls for testimony, but not stridency. In poetry and episodic prose, we will forge testimony to protect places we love, and sustain the planet, with utterance kin to natural beauty. As a river testifies, so shall we—flow, light, grace. As a tree testifies, so shall we—a lofty intelligence, rooted in fact. The loud conversations of our time require winsome witness for the wild world. After writing together, we will explore ways to make our witness public. This class includes a lunch break.
