Join four fabulous poets from British Columbia for Igniting the Green Fuse: Women on Eco-Poetry. This exciting half-day workshop is located in a spectacular old-growth forest just five miles from downtown Seattle.

Our unique workshop is part of the inaugural Cascadia Poetry Festival organized by Paul Nelson and SPLAB. And I am delighted to announce that our eco-poetry workshop is free, thanks to the Seward Park Environmental and Audubon Center where it will be held.

The four poets cooking up this great workshop for you are Kate Braid, Heidi Greco, Catherine Owen, and myself, Kim Goldberg, as panel moderator. A beautiful chapbook of our eco-poetry is being produced specifically for this festival and will be available at our eco-poetry workshop.

Come prepared to listen, talk, think, feel, walk in the woods, and write!
