About the Event

Initial understanding of eco-poetry was often intertwined with nature poetry. Poets for centuries have written about their environment to draw attention to its beauty. At a time when we have begun to feel the effects of climate change, contemporary poets have brought to the forefront the adverse effects of modernization of the planet.

In this workshop, we will read the work of poets such as Robert Frost, W.S. Merwin, Aimee Nezkhukumatathil, R.K. Narayan, Camille T. Dungy, and Yusef Komunyakaa. The session will combine technique, craft, writing time, and the time to share work. We will reimagine our roles in the current climate crisis via poetry, deciphering the difference between an environmental poem and an environmentalist poem.

GAURI AWASTHI is an Indian poet and sustainability activist. An MFA graduate from McNeese State University, her work has received support from Sundress Academy For The Arts, Louisiana Office of Cultural Development, Bread Loaf Writers Conference, and Kundiman.
