Event Details

Calling young writers who care about the earth!

This pale blue dot is the only home we earthlings have. With climate change affecting nature and the world around us, how can we as artists depict humans’ complex relationship with the planet?

Try out VSEAL’s 1-hour online writing workshop on Ecopoetry, a type of poetry that focuses on our place as living, breathing, and constantly evolving beings in the natural world.

Led by Montreal-based poet, Greg Santos, young poets are encouraged to sign-up to create their own original poems with an emphasis on ecological themes and messages.
