Calling young poets for climate poetry camp

Maine Climate Action Now and The Telling Room invite young writers to craft their own climate poems at a June 27-29 poetry camp at the Waterfall Arts Center in Belfast.
Poets ages 12 - 30 will explore influencing the world with their writing and their passion for climate justice. The camp takes place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The camp offers inspiration on the shores of Belfast Harbor, from poets’ own climate experiences and in the work of poet activists.
Participants will have the opportunity to play with found poetry that transforms the daily grind of climate news into beauty and powerful action, as well as look at how poets use voice, rhythm, metaphors and other tools to surprise readers with new ways of looking at the world.
The cost is free, with up to $150 stipend available. To register for the course, and for more information visit or call 207-522-3238.
