I am honored and thrilled to be included in the inaugural issue of a very special literary magazine, Plant-Human Quarterly: Talking and Listening to Plants .
Published four times per year on the solstices and equinoxes, PHQ explores the
myriad ways writers make manifest their relationship to the botanical world, attempting to
communicate across boundaries and possibly approach a plant’s-eye-view of the world.
PHQ Issue No. 1 includes poems and essays by Ellen Bass, Sally Bliumis-Dunn, Frances
Cannon (yours truly) , Stephen Cramer, Alison Hawthorne Deming, Chard deNiord, Hannah Fries, Forrest Gander, Jody Gladding, Kimiko Hahn, Brenda Hillman, Jane Hirshfield, Robin Wall Kimmerer, Sydney Lea, Cleopatra Mathis, Jim Moore, Pattiann Rogers, Scott Russell Sanders, Derek Sheffield, Michael Simms, Arthur Sze, J.P. White, Tony Whedon, and Patricia Zylius.
