Molly Fisk's lecture for Lookout: Envisioning Futures with Wildfire
Everyone is invited to attend this live Zoom event with Molly Fisk. She'll be exploring connections between poetry and how we process catastrophic events such as wildfire. She'll share selections from the book she edited "California Fire & Water: A Climate Crisis Anthology," a project funded by a fellowship from the Academy of American Poets. Fisk created this project to teach kids across California to write poems about the climate crisis as a way to process their feelings about it. The anthology brings together selections from these youth poets, as well as poems by many prominent writers.

This talk is part of Spring Creek Project's lecture series "Lookout: Envisioning Futures with Wildfire."

Molly Fisk is a poet, radio commentator, life coach, writing teacher, painter, mentor, and speaker. She is the author of four collections of poems and three compilations of essays/commentary. She served as Poet Laureate of Nevada County, California, from 2017 to 2019.

"Lookout: Envisioning Futures with Wildfire" is an 11-week series exploring how we are shaping this era of megafires and how it is shaping us. Speakers from across the arts, humanities, and environmental sciences will help us scan the horizon for the ideas and stories that can guide us through this critical and disorienting time.

Talks in the series will be broadcast live on Zoom Tuesdays at 6 p.m. PST / 8 p.m. CST / 9 p.m. EST from January 4 to March 15. Learn more and register for other talks here: https://bit.ly/3lHTlex

This series is hosted by the Spring Creek Project and the Environmental Arts and Humanities Initiative at Oregon State University (OSU) and co-sponsored by OSU's Arts and Education Complex, OSU's Center for the Humanities, OSU's Sustainability Office, and Terrain.org. Fisk's lecture is also co-sponsored by Corvallis-Benton County Public Library, Grass Roots Books & Music, and OSU's School of Writing, Literature, and Film.
