The Thunder Mutters: Reading and Writing Eco-poetry with Jeremy Voigt

Join us for an exploration of what it means to read and write eco-poetry. Ecological poetry, poetry focused on "the relations of organisms and their environment," lends itself well to self-discovery, exploring social issues, as well as developing the art of attention. Each session will involve reading and discussing provided poems and a poetry writing exercise. Jeremy Voigt has been teaching for nearly 20 years, and has published poems in Nimrod and other magazines. His manuscript, Estuary, has been a semi-finalist with many presses. He is currently a PhD candidate at the University of Birmingham with a focus on the eco-poetry of Gerard Manley Hopkins and Thomas Hardy.

Instructor: Jeremy Voigt. Class meets Wednesday, May 31 and June 7 from 6:00PM-8:00PM (2 sessions), and is $69; click to register. To see the full listing of current Chuckanut Writers classes, click here.
