Ecopoetics with Daniela Naomi Molnar

January 6 @ 2:30 am - 7:30 am


Ecopoetics with Daniela Naomi Molnar

What does it mean to write WITH a place, to consider a place as a wise collaborator rather than a backdrop? Through guided prompts and examples, this class will explore how place can be a medium that twines with the medium of language within the vessel of a poem. You will learn how to braid your own voice with the voices of the earth in the inspiring company of others. You’ll also get an introduction to the vast world of contemporary and historical ecopoetics, a field that is fascinated by how places are made by poems and how poems make places. If weather allows, we will be outside for part of the day. No previous experience is required though a familiarity with writing and/or reading poetry will be helpful. 

Please bring writing materials and a bag lunch, and come ready to spend some time outdoors.  Coffee, tea and snacks will be provided throughout the day.

Please let us know at arts@pnfarm.com if you have have accommodation needs, or if cost is a barrier. 

Daniela Naomi Molnar is an artist, poet, and writer collaborating with the mediums of language, image, paint, pigment, and place. She is also a wilderness guide, educator, and eternal student. Her book CHORUS was selected by Kazim Ali as the winner of Omnidawn Press’ 1st/2nd Book Award. Her work is the subject of a front-page feature in the Los Angeles Times, an Oregon Art Beat profile, an entry in the Oregon Encyclopedia, a feature in Poetry Daily, and has been recognized by numerous grants, fellowships, and residencies. Her next book, Light / Remains, is a hybrid of poetry, essay, and art, out in 2025 from Bored Wolves Press. She founded the Art + Ecology program at the Pacific Northwest College of Art and helped found the backcountry artist residency Signal Fire. She can be found in Portland, Oregon or exploring global wildlands. www.danielamolnar.com / Instagram: @daniela_naomi_molnar
