Dragonfly.eco is a place to find meaningful stories about our natural world and humanity’s connection with it. The site explores the wild, crazy, and breathtaking literary trail of eco-fiction, with a large book database, spotlights, interviews, and more. Our motto is “blowing your mind with wild words and worlds.” This site raises awareness of the impact of, and diversity in, storytelling around the world that explores climate change and related ecological themes. This is a volunteer project, done with passion and commitment, in order to explore the wild in literature. Contact us if you want to get involved. The only donations we accept are your stories.
To cite works found here, the author is Mary Woodbury unless otherwise indicated. Note that the Goodreads information found on book pages is copyright by Goodreads. The plugin pulls in the information and helps to keep it up to date.
Want to Support Us?
We appreciate you following us on social media and contributing to the conversation! We also look for writers and readers to submit books to the database, submit excerpts of their environmental writing to our library, and offer to be interviewed. For interviews, we generally look for diverse individuals living around the world who have written notable eco-fiction.
We do not take monetary donations but do offer editorial and web content/setup services on our sister site.
