What If The Humans Stayed Home?

Title has been corrected and the time & date has been updated from print catalog.

Intermediate | Unusual and inspiring animal activity has been documented during this period of self-quarantine, some true and some sensationalized. In a recent New York Times article, author Helen MacDonald asks, “What is it that we are desperate to see in the natural world right now, and why?” In this ecopoetry class, we will dig into these questions, generate new work, and read and discuss contemporary ecopoets already exploring their own fragile ecologies.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through the end of 2020.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
