Written River Issue 10

Written River is a lit­er­ary jour­nal pub­lished by Hiraeth Press which focuses on poetry and non-​​​​fiction prose explor­ing nature and our rela­tion­ship to it. Published as an annual anthol­ogy, we strive to encour­age the dis­ci­pline of eco-​​​​poetics and return the voice of the poet to the body of the Earth. Eco-​​​​poetics is poetry in which the energy of the ecosys­tem flows through the poem, cre­at­ing a writ­ten river of words which ebbs with the cre­ativ­ity of the entire Earth commun­ity. Written River marks the con­flu­ence of many streams and many voices as they flow back into the nour­ish­ing ground of the water­shed.

This issue of Written River features essays by Matthew Dickerson, Susan Double, Sophia Sinopoulos-​​Lloyd, Aven Satre-​​Meloy, Maximillian Werner, and Michael Engelhard.
