Ecopoetry is a sphere of poetry that integrates poetry and advocacy for the protection of nature. Many poets such as Emily Dickinson and Robert Frost often used their poetic craft to advocate for closer ties between humans and the natural world.
In this workshop, participants will learn how poetry can be used as a medium for investigating into ecological issues, and learn to craft their own ecopoems with Cheyenne Alexandria Phillips and Venezia. Participants are required to bring a few poems they have written that deal with ecology.
This workshop is part of Open: Singapore Young Writers Lab, organised by Singapore Book Council.
