CWC member Maureen Eppstein has had four poems accepted for Scarlet Tanager Books' (http://www.scarlettanager.com/)
forthcoming anthology Fire and Rain: Ecopoetry of California.
October 1, 2018 is the scheduled publication date.
The anthology editors note:
"The collective contributions to this anthology come together to weave a braid of voices examining and celebrating the dazzling variety of California’s unique biological zones. This anthology will provide an arguably much-needed platform for the ecologies of California—from Sierra to Mojave Desert; valleys and streams; coast and forest—and will hopefully take its place in the canon of the finest writing and writers of our state."
