Good writing tells a story. Stories create change.


The world is waking up to the climate and ecological crisis. Youth are leading the way – but mainstream media has lagged behind. 


We need more writing and reporting on the climate crisis!


We need journalists to explain the science and politics in everyday terms. We need essayists in town halls and schools, on beaches and mountaintops. We need fiction-writers to craft unforgettable plots and characters. We need poets to create metaphors that sting and motivate.


We need you!


Join Understorey Magazine and the Alexa McDonough Institute for Women, Gender and Social Justice for a two-day workshop on writing and publishing about the climate crisis. Work with authors, editors, journalists, and poets to learn the craft of writing, including journalism, memoir, essay, fiction, and poetry.
