Celebrate The Earth With Our EcoPoetry Reading


“Malama ‘Aina” – Honor The Earth



This year The Poets Corner’s Eco-Poetry reading will feature 12 poems juried by cohosts John Paul Caponigro and Meg Weston.

In Why Ecopoetry? There’s No Planet B John Shoptaw states, “Ecopoetry is nature poetry that has designs on us, that imagines changing the ways we think, feel about, and live and act in the world.” He goes on to state that eco-poems are both environmental and environmentalist.

For this reading, we looked for poems that help us see the earth anew. Without being didactic or moralistic, our poems can express our concerns about our impact on our planet alongside our sense of awe and reverence for nature, wilderness, and the wonders of this world we live in.

Celebrate Earth Day and come hear this inspiring gathering of voices.
