Written River (Vol. 5 Issue 2)

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, William Henry Searle, Marianne Werner, and Amber Ornelas and photography by Ron Roth, Katherine Minott, and Russell Streur.
