Calling young poets everywhere—Earth needs you!
Join poet Greg Santos to explore our complex connections to our unique planet. This pale blue dot is the only home we earthlings have. With climate change affecting nature and the world around us, how can we as artists depict humans’ complex relationship with the planet?
