The natural world in verse.

Poet and UMBS Environmental Writing Instructor Keith Taylor will read poems inspired by his observation of the natural world. Many of the works are directly inspired by the Biological Station, and some by the people who teach here.

Keith Taylor teaches Environmental Writing and Great Lakes Literature at the Biological Station. He serves as Coordinator of the University of Michigan's Undergraduate Creative Writing Program and Director of the Bear River Writers Conference. He has published several collections of his poems, including Marginalia for a Natural History (2011) and If the World Becomes so Bright (2009), and co-edited several essay and story collections, most recently Ghost Writers: Us Haunting Them (2012).

This event is free and open to the public.
