“The Greening of Literature: Eco-fiction and poetry to enlighten and inspire” Panel discussion with JoeAnn Hart, Mindy Mejia, Ann Pancake, and Gretchen Primack, moderated by John Yunker. From mountaintop removal to ocean plastic to endangered species, ecological issues are increasingly on writers’ minds. Authors on this panel discuss how their ecologically themed fiction and poetry engages readers in powerful ways that nonfiction can’t. Panelists discuss writing in these emerging sub-genres as well as their readers’ responses, and offer tips for writing about the environment in ways that are galvanizing and instructive without sacrificing creativity to polemics.
