EcoTheo Collective presents Wonder in Wyoming, a literary festival

July 9, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - July 11, 2021 @ 12:00 pm PDT

EcoTheo Collective presents Wonder in Wyoming, a literary festival taking place July 9–11, hosted by St. John’s Episcopal Church, Jackson.

From the organizers:

Wonder in Wyoming: Three Days + Two Nights of LIVE Reading Events, Free and open to the public

Wonder in Wyoming is the brainchild of Board member Spencer Reece, acclaimed poet, memoirist, and Episcopal priest. While serving the Cathedral in Madrid, Spencer created the Unamuno Author Series that brought renowned poets such as Richard Blanco and Jericho Brown to read as part of a poetry festival in Spain. We envision a literary festival that connects participants with the sacred beauty of the Grand Tetons along with the power of literature and the arts to inspire, heal, and transform.

This festival is made possible through the generous support of St. John’s Episcopal Church in Jackson, Wyoming, and the Episcopal Diocese of Wyoming. Our first annual gathering will consist of LOGOS readings, workshops, and meditation services that incorporate poetry. Featured poets are Spencer Reece, Paisley Rekdal, Diane Glancy, Carrie Fountain, Mark Wunderlich, Joanna Klink, and Gregory Pardlo. In addition, the four recipients of the 2021 Starshine and Clay Fellowships will give readings. 

As we look to 2022 we plan to include more writers and makers as Wonder in Wyoming continues to fulfill EcoTheo Collective’s mission to celebrate wonder, enliven conversations, and inspire commitments in ecology, spirituality, and art. 

Generously hosted by St. John’s Episcopal Church, Jackson and co-hosted by Jackson Hole Writers.

The Poet-Organizers of Wonder in Wyoming 2021 are Travis Helms, Jason Myers, and Jeremy Voigt.
