Project History:

Writer and creative director Megan Hollingsworth initiated Extinction Witness in 2012 as 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. 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.

Recent posts can be accessed via MailChimp Archives and include ‘Letting Go of the Wheel: transition poems’ collection at the Extinction Witness website.
