Eco-Justice Poetry: Melissa Tuckey & Brenda Cárdenas
Aligned with environmental justice activism and thought, the anthology Ghost Fishing describes eco-justice poetry as a way of recognizing environment as home: "the place we work, live, play and worship." Editor of Ghost Fishing Melissa Tuckey is co-founder of Split This Rock, an organization dedicated to poetry of provocation and witness, as well as co-translator of a book of poems by contemporary Chinese poet Yang Zi. Her poetry collection Tenuous Chapel was selected by Charles Simic for the ABZ First Book Prize. Brenda Cárdenas's books of poetry are From the Tongues of Brick and Stone and Boomerang. With verse that shifts between English and Spanish, her poetry captures her reverence for the natural world. Experience both poets live at Folger Theatre in D.C.
