Poetry Off the Shelf: Ghost Fishing: An Eco-Justice Poetry Anthology


A gathering of poetry at the intersection of culture, social justice, and the environment, Ghost Fishing is the first anthology to focus solely on poetry with an eco-justice bent. As a new addition to the field of nature poetry anthologies, which have historically lacked diversity, this book presents a rich terrain of contemporary environmental poetry with roots in many cultural traditions. Anthology contributors, including Tara Betts, Quraysh Ali Lansana, Elise Paschen, and 2016 Ruth Lilly Poetry Prize winner Ed Roberson, join Ghost Fishing editor Melissa Tuckey and Split This Rock executive director Sarah Browning for a reading and discussion about the book.
