Aging and the Arts Poetry Circle: EcoPoetry

Saturday, February 18, 2023 - 1:00pm to 2:30pm

New spring 2023 location! This event will take place in the breezeway the University of Arizona Poetry Center, an indoor/outdoor space.  All are welcome! 

Join us for monthly poetry discussions, led by docents from the UA Poetry Center. The event is free, and no preparation or knowledge of poetry is necessary to participate.  A reading packet will be shared.  For anyone who enjoys poetry or learning more about poets in a conversational setting, this informal gathering includes many opportunities to contribute to the conversation and ask questions. It is also a great way to meet people in the community who have similar interests.

This discussion will feature the topic of ecopoetry and will feature a range of poets, including work by Wendy Burk, Alison Hawthorne Deming, Natalie Diaz, Joy Harjo, Tony Hoagland, Eric Magrane, W.S. Merwin, Czelaw Milosz, N. Scott Momaday, Simon J. Ortiz, Mary Oliver, and Ofelia Zepeda, and Robert Bly.
