Written River Summer Solstice Issue!

The summer solstice issue of Written River: A Journal of Eco-Poetics in now available!

Written River is a lit­erary journal pub­lished bi-annually by Hiraeth Press which focuses on poetry and non-fiction prose exploring nature and our rela­tion­ship to it.  Published on the Summer and Winter Solstices in dig­ital format, we strive to encourage the dis­ci­pline of ecopo­etics and return the voice of the poet to the body of the Earth.  Ecopoetics 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.

The theme of this issue is: Becoming Wild. In this edition we feature poetry by: Wally Swist, Maureen Epstein, Nina Pick, Jenny Angyal, Lowell Uda, Michael Salcman, Gwendolyn Morgan, Sonya Deulina , J.K. McDowell and Jamie K. Reaser.
