11/5/21 – Writing the Land is a collaborative project between land trusts and artists to help raise awareness for the preservation of land, ecosystems, and biodiversity. The program helps poets “adopt” a conserved property, partnering them with a land trust for the calendar year.
Poets visit the properties and create poems inspired by the land. At the end of the year, the poems are published, with a chapter featuring each participating land trust.
This session, features Writing the Land Director, Lis McLoughlin, and Kathy Kremins, a seasoned Writing the Land poet, who will share her experience and lead the group through an exercise to get in the creative writing mindset!
Writing the Land develops Interactive Maps to feature their land trust-poet collaborations throughout the country, each year (some even include poetry recordings!). Explore featured lands from 2021 and featured lands for 2022
This workshop was originally presented as part of CLCC’s Fall 2021 Conserving Land by Staying Connected Programming.
