Caitlin wrote a story inspired by this collaboration that was published in ZenoMagazine.

Next steps

We are speaking at Be Curious 2021 about our collaboration, where we will be inviting members of the public to respond with their own poems. Caitlin will be presenting on our collaboration at the Association for the Study of Literature and the Environment (ASLE) Virtual Conference in July 2021.
