Poetry Tribute to Mary Oliver




Anawim Arts is dedicated to expressing the intersection of art and spirituality.  Mary Oliver was a poet who exemplified this connection, often finding in nature an experience or metaphor that connects us to the divine in all things.  She was a beloved, Pulitzer-Prize winning American poet who passed away in January, 2019. Anawim Arts is hosting a poetry reading in her honor.

Poets are invited to submit original work that reflects her sensitivity to nature and/or her deep connection to the spirit.

The event is sponsored in collaboration with Tau Center, A Spirituality Ministry of the Wheaton Franciscans and will be held at:
