Writing the Land: Maine
Writing the Land: Maine is an anthology of 13 land trusts and 27 poets who wrote poems inspired by their adopted lands throughout Maine. Information about the land trusts and lands open to the public is included within each chapter as well as the poems. Purchase your copy from any participating land trust.
“Writing the Land is an attempt to honor nature and our relationship with it in a way that is as equitable and transparent as it is deep and entangled. We intend to be as inclusive—to humans and places—as we hope the mantle of protection that land trusts offer can be. Our work will never be complete but gains strength, depth, beauty, and energy in a multitude of voices.” —-Lis McLoughlin, editor
