Project History:

Writer and creative director Megan Hollingsworth initiated Extinction Witness in 2012 with recognition of the naturally complicated and conflicted human emotional and spiritual response to genocide, global warming, and species extinction. The project work has included an eighteen-month (February 2014 – September 2015) creative witness with the critically endangered and extinct, including languages.

Featuring the work of a few other writers and several visual artists, including Bryan Holland, Chris Jordan, Denise Monaghan, Jeff Cain, and Tom Murphy, the 2014 – 2015 witness revolved on a monthly basis from one group to the next and was offered in posts via MailChimp. The edited and archived posts will be available via the Extinction Witness website in 2018. Megan’s personal contribution to the witness was poetry and prose. The poetry along with illustrations and cover art by Bryan Holland is included in her first published collection, also anticipated 2018. 

Recent posts can be accessed via MailChimp Archives. Past posts to the Extinction Witness website include ‘Winter’s Frugal Hope’ (2016), ‘Refuge In Community’ (2015), and ‘Letting Go of the Wheel: transition poems’ (2016).
