    Workshop: The Image Elemental: Taking Stock of Gary Snyder’s Turtle Island with Kimberly Burwick

    Robert Kern says of Gary Snyder’s 1974 Pulitzer Prize-winning volume, Turtle Island, the poet manages to “to locate the self ecologically in its actions and interactions with its environment.” Departing from his fellow “beats” who wished to explore the sodden underbelly of American culture, Snyder propels the discussion of environmental conscious into a pressing and meaningful investigation. In this vein, we will assess our present ecological and environmental state through a workshop on the concrete image.

    Kimberly Burwick MFA, is the author of four collections of poetry: Has No Kinsmen (Red Hen Press 2006), Horses in the Cathedral, winner of the Robert Dana Prize (Anhinga Press 2011), Good Night Brother, winner of the Burnside Review Prize, (Burnside Review Press 2014) and her forthcoming book Custody of the Eyes (Carnegie Mellon University Press 2017).  She teaches creative writing at Washington State University and at UCLA Extension. Kimberly holds a MFA from Antioch University Los Angeles, and a BA from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. Originally from New England, she now lives in Moscow, Idaho with her husband and four-year-old son.
