Dragonfly: An Exploration of Eco-fictionPosted on by Mary Woodbury
Eco-fiction.com’s curator Mary Woodbury will be on a panel on Earth Day, at Vancouver Public Library, that will talk about storytelling and narratives on climate change found in science and literary arts. Also in attendance will be Claudia Casper, Ehlam Zaminpaima, and Deborah Harford. Details to come later. Also that day is the March for Science (hopefully in the morning, so that we can participate!)
Thanks to Green Writers Press and Ashland Creek Press for their work on the Wikipedia article for ecofiction.
We now have a Facebook page. Please consider liking it! Also, I have much appreciation for biologist and wonderful colleague Jessica Groenendijk for her assistance as editor for the community.
Our Eco-fiction stage at Word Vancouver (the largest literary festival in Canada) was a success!
Congrats to Mehek Naresh for the winning story, “Left Behind,” in our recent solarpunk contest. This story is at our Green Reads – Excerpts site. Mehek won a $100.00 Amazon gift card for her winning story.
I finally updated the taxonomy, and now you can search by major genre on the “Bookshelf” widget at the top of the home page. Audiences are All, Children’s, YA, and LGBT for now. The secondary grouping is by genre. I’m also working on more mapping, so stay tuned!
In 2016 Eco-fiction began a new subsite called Green Reads – Excerpts. You may submit or read samples of environmental and nature writing, from novels to graphic novels to poetry & prose to short stories.
Our running blog has been going since 2013 but now has its own space slightly separate from the main site. This site isn’t some elite runner blog but a look at hiking, trail running, and being out in the wild during the anthropocene. The site also explores writing and reading ideas.
Discover! explores older or forgotten books with an ecological slant.
