Living off the Land - The contemplation of nature has always been a major element of poetry, but in our times of global warming and species loss, it has taken on a new urgency. We will look at poetry of the environment and use local issues/landscapes as a starting point for new work.

Cost includes a signed copy of Hotel Worthy by Val Nieman $30.00 at this link:
