Regreen: Writing Place & Nature Poetry
Place matters and plays an indelible role in the way we perceive and come to understand each other and the world around us. Crystal S. Gibbins will discuss what it means to write about place, read new and selected poems from Now/Here (Holy Cow! Press), and explore how that writing complicates traditional nature poetry. As the editor of Split Rock Review and poetry anthologies, she will offer writing/publishing advice and what she looks for in submissions. A short Q&A will follow the presentation.
This event is scheduled at Lawrence University Warch Campus Center in the Nathan Marsh Pusey Room.
