Instructor: Angela Hume 

In this workshop, we will explore the term ecopoetics through our own creative, site-specific writing and art practices on Point Reyes National Seashore. We will ask: what does it mean to write poetry in a time of unprecedented ecological crisis? What role might experimental writing play in shaping or changing cultural attitudes about the natural world? In addition to creating poems and other textual and art objects, we will take our ecopoetics practices beyond the page through active engagement with local ecologies and environmental issues, and we will write in response to these expanded ecopoetics practices.  No previous creative writing experience is required for this workshop. Participants are encouraged to experiment with hybrid writing and art practices. All all welcome!
