Consider the commonalities, contradictions, and coexistence of nature and culture through a poetic lens by challenging the boundaries between “wild” and “civilized.” Take inspiration from the natural beauty of the ecologically thriving landscapes at Mt. Cuba and discover the potential for growing your writing skills through the workshop format as you analyze and appreciate nature-themed poems with your peers. You are encouraged to bring your own material (finished or unfinished) to the workshop.
