Environmental Storytelling and the Collective Work of Repair continues with poet and scholar, Vievee Francis. This first interactive writing workshop explores and redefines eco-poetry through an interrogation of our inner environments. Francis reads and unpacks work related to environmental inheritance, haunting & poetic world-making. Facilitators from Write Out, a community-based creative writing collective in Syracuse, collaborate with Francis to help workshop participants engage their own writing inspired by Francis’s work.

Francis also presents a public reading on campus, Dec. 7th.

Environmental Storytelling and the Collective Work of Repair is a year-long exploration of the environmental humanities and arts organized by the Engaged Humanities Network in the College of Arts & Sciences, and SUNY-ESF’s Writing, Rhetoric, and Communications Program.
