Ecoimaginings 2021

The University of Leeds Poetry Centre and the School of English¬† are collaborating with Nanyang Technological University Singapore on ‘Ecoimaginings 2021’, an online conference to be held on the mornings of 11 and 12 December. This¬† conference is organized by the Asia Creative Writing Programme with the support of the National Arts Council of Singapore.

The event will showcase showcase examples of Ecoimaginings (fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction, multimedia, genre fluid works). The climate crisis and environmental issues confront everyone of us and threaten all aspects of life on earth. How do creative writers engage with these complex, environmental challenges? Where do we find hope and courage for the future? What role should creative writers play in addressing environmental issues? These questions and others will be considered through readings, panels, and discussions during Ecoimaginings 2021.
