Sponsored by the Grace A. Tanner Center for Human Values at Southern Utah University, the Writing About Ecology and Placeconference is the third in the Eco-poetry, Ecology, and Place in a Technological World conference series, and the evolution of the first two to include a broader spectrum of writing — now including prose — and students. The student-oriented conference features keynote addresses, writing workshops and discussions, an editing and publishing panel, receptions, and a hike and writing workshop in Zion National Park.
Simmons will once again serve as editor-in-residence and work with students in classes and as part of the conference. He will also chair the “Writing and Publishing in a World of Rapid Ecological Change” panel.
