Join us February 25-27, 2022 on Zoom for a Poets’ Retreat focussed on healing ourselves and the planet.

Explore relationships between your writing practice and climate change in these gentle, restorative, and inspiring workshops with like-minded poets using their craft to promote change and right relationships between humans and the rest of Nature. Three workshops, an exclusive poetry reading, peer writing groups, discussion with a publisher, Qigong, and an opportunity to read in the Authors and Artists festival. 10+ hours of programming: $225 CAD. Payment plans and one competitive, needs-based scholarship for a BIPOC poet available. Workshops: Artistic Contemplative Practice for EcoJustice (additionally, Qigong) by JuPong Lin, performance poet and faculty at Goddard Collage; Tender Witness: Climate Grieving for Poets by Dina Stander, end of life navigator and poet; Moon Botany by performance artist, writer, and disability culture activist Petra Kuppers. All workshop providers are BIPOC, as are all headline speakers in the co-occurring Authors and Artists online festival, whose theme is Writing the Land, tied to the WTL project (www.writingtheland.org).
