Ecobloomspaces:  Poetry at the Intersection of Social Identity and Nature/Environment/Place (Details Here)

We'd like to read poems that explore the relationship between place/environment/nature and gender, sexual identity, race, ethnicity, disability, and/or social class.  

Poets are encouraged to "go into yourself. Search for the reason that bids you write," as Rilke urged. Simply creatively explore these ideas and intersectional spaces to find what emerges.

BOOK REVIEW

"Violence and Domestication in Judas Goat by Gabrielle Bates"
by Allisa Cherry

"Judas Goat is symphonic in its weaving of religion, sex, the animal kingdom, gendered expectations, the Deep South, a broken covenant between a mother and daughter, and, ultimately, love and marriage."
