For three years, a fair amount of my time and emotional energy has been devoted to working with neighbors trying to save the woods behind our neighborhood. The long process and struggle made its way into my writing. I’m honored that my poem “Search Party,” about the site walk for the proposed development, won our local land trust’s 2022 Poetry Contest.
