The February 2014 issue of Plumwood Mountain is now complete with 34 poems, 7 book reviews, a spotlight on road kill, and most recently Rose Lucas’s article on darkness and its possibilities in the poetry of Jane Kenyon. If ecopoetry responds to ecological crisis, and calls into question the ways language, particularly poetic language, is both implicated in and resists ecological destruction, perhaps it also prompts and enacts an attentiveness to place, things, matter, light and shade, time and materials, to human and other than human interrelatednesses. What is ecopoetry and what might it become? Plumwood Mountain is now open for submissions for the August 2014 issue. Submissions close 15 May 2014.
