An Interconnected World: Writing Workshop with Eco-Poet and Author Heather Swan


Friday, March 22, 2024    
4:00 pm - 6:00 pm


Penn State University Park Campus

What does it mean to be human on this interconnected planet at this moment in history? How do your mind and body change when thinking and writing with the natural world? Join eco-poet and nature writer Heather Swan for some writing experiments in a workshop for adults, including those who are seasoned writers and those who have never written at all.

Heather Swan is an award-winning eco-poet and author whose work celebrates the many tiny creatures that play crucial roles in our ecosystems, as well as the people on the front lines of the fight to save them. Weaving art and science with inspiring stories of people doing their part to protect insects and the environment, Swan takes readers around the globe to highlight practical solutions to safeguard our fragile planet. Her first book from Penn State University Press, Where Honeybees Thrive, won the Sigurd Olson Nature Writing Prize. Her second book from Penn State University Press, Where the Grass Still Sings, is coming out this spring.
