Join us for this free event via YouTube to celebrate new poetry by the women of Empty Bowl Press, Holly J. Hughes, Shin Yu Pai, and Ann Spiers. Their poems define what is fragile, threatened, and all in all, widely spiritual in our natural environment. Shin Yu Pai’s Virga offers Buddhist thought from lived experience; Ann Spiers’ Rain Violent captures climate crisis in quatrains linked with weather symbols; and Holly J. Hughes’ Hold Fast celebrates the “ten thousand sorrows and ten thousand joys” she invites us all to hold fast. Empty Bowl Press’s mission is to publish writers dedicated to the love and preservation of human communities in wild places. As poets of Empty Bowl Press, they believe the climate crisis affects all living beings…people, animals, plants, natural systems. They find it urgent as poets to join other writers at Get Lit! to speak about these effects.
