Green Writing: Celebrating the Earth with Poetry

Poets have always sought out nature as inspiration for their poems and as a place in which to write them. In celebration of National Poetry Month, join Nimrod International Journal and the Tulsa Botanic Garden as we explore the connections between poetry and nature at Green Writing: Celebrating the Earth with Poetry.
Green Writing: Celebrating the Earth with Poetry will feature a day of poetry readings at the Tulsa Botanic Garden on Sunday, April 23rd from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m.  This special event will let you take in the beauty of spring as you explore the A.R. and Marylouise Tandy Floral Terraces and enjoy nature- and environmentally-inspired poetry read by Nimrod editors and Tulsa Public School poetry students stationed throughout the Terraces. You can also get your own creative juices flowing by adding a haiku to our haiku tree for the chance to win free passes to the Garden. We’ll finish the day with a short group reading at 4:00 p.m. 
In the event of inclement weather, cancellation information will be posted on Nimrod’s Facebook and Twitter pages by 12:00 p.m. on the day of the event.
Garden admission is free for Garden members, $8 for ages 13+, and $4 for ages 3–12. Free for children 2 and under. Green Writing: Celebrating the Earth with Poetry is free with your admission to the Garden. For more information, contact the Garden at 918-289-0330 or Nimrod at 918-631-3080 or [email protected].
