Literature and Environment: A Reading and Creative Writing Colloquium

Literature and Environment:

A Reading and Creative Writing Colloquium

On Saturday, December 7th from 2:00 – 5:00 pm, at the Johnson Education Center, D&R Greenway Land Trust will host the next installment of the “Being Human” festival, the international festival of the humanities.

This colloquium invites participants to creatively examine the role of literature in tackling the environmental crisis. Professor William Gleason and PhD candidate Kate Thorpe, both from the Department of English, will lead the event with insights from their undergraduate seminar “Literature and Environment.” Convening at the D&R Greenway Land Trust headquarters, participants will first closely read a poem, analyzing not only how the writer imagines relationships between humans and the natural world, but also the formal strategies used by the poet. Next, participants will walk along the Scott and Hella McVay Poetry Trail, where they will learn to craft their own poems.

This event is free and open to the public.
