A workbook for reading + writing nature poems,
and making Earth-based essences as poetic ritual.
by GOODWITCH + LA Warman
ABOUT THE BOOK:
What different ways can we listen to the Earth? How do plants make me feel (in my body)? What would it mean to read + write with my whole body? What are essences + how will I make my own?
WRITE EARTH is
a deep exploration
and plant medicine as poetry,
Ritually printed + embossed on an antique letterpress machine, in ink infused with MUGWORT flower essence
80 pages of fine lavender cotton paper
Spiral-bound by hand with a glow-in-the-dark coil
