Writing poetry about the environment can be a lot of things. In the first of 2 parts, we drop in on Orion Magazine's environmental writer's workshop and learn from distinguished poet Major Jackson. Jackson intertwines the rural, the urban, and the cultural into his work.

This episode features longtime public radio journalist Karen Michel's intimate conversation with Jackson woven together with audio recorded during Jackson's poetry reading at Omega.

Join Michel for each episode of Dropping In as she sits down with the great thinkers, creative talent, and social visionaries who teach at Omega, to explore the many ways to awaken the best in the human spirit.
