  Eastern NC Literary Homecoming
white bar
This year’s theme is “Rewriting Nature: Impacting Changes in the Environment.” There is a delicate interrelationship between human beings and the environment. Our relationship with the environment, as it stands, favors people over environment and progress over preservation, “progress” in terms of creating areas of intensive development that exhaust the environment and landscape. Literature explores human encounters with the environment as well as the impact that nature has on us, including our personal responses to and philosophical interpretations of nature. Artists whose work delve into our interactions with the world around us will discuss what role literature and art do and must play in order to impact a social awareness and make our relationship with the environment more balanced.
