I am honored to have served as a commissioned writer for the McKenzie River Trust's Willamette Confluence property in Western Oregon, as part of the Writing the Land Project. See below, for the poem-video (Writing the Land, 2023) produced for this project.
Writing the Land also publishes wonderful anthologies containing profiles of land trusts/conservancies with associated poetry for lands across the United States. This year, poets Kristin Berger, Brittany Corrigan, and I each wrote for different lands within the McKenzie River Trust's holdings. I wrote for the Willamette Confluence, where the Coast Fork and Middle Fork of the Willamette meet.
