Poetry. Literary Nonfiction. Ecopoetry. YUIQUIMBIANG is part of an ongoing project to create an ecopoetic form that integrates political essay and environmental poetics: a project that evolved out of the author's double life as a poet and environmental activist. It was driven by a desire to develop a radical ecopoetic form that would effectively communicate Australia's ecological crisis as encountered in two specific regions—East Gippsland and the Monaro—and enact an alternative inhabitation of the land.
Louise Crisp is a writer based in East Gippsland. Her work focuses on specific regional environments, particularly in south-eastern Australia, northern Australia and Provence, France.Author City: OMEO AUS
