Manning the bridge of the mothership is Gillian Parrish, a writer, instructor and student of somatic practices. Though she feels most at home in Cornwall and Kathmandu, she now divides her time between stacks of books and piles of papers in brick and tree city St. Louis. Her poems and essays, which mostly get their start by way of walks with a handheld recorder, have appeared in various journals, some linked below. A book of poems, of rain and nettles wove, is forthcoming from Singing Horse Press in 2018. A couple of essays on ecopoetics are also below, and you can find her pedageekery (because aren’t well-crafted syllabi and well-focused conversations halfway to being poems?) in Faculty Focus.
