Megan Hollingsworth

Megan Hollingsworth is a mother and writer. She is founder and creative director at ex·tinc·tion wit·ness, a collaborative art project informed by her Quaker upbringing and activist roots in forest advocacy, as well as her existential response to genocide and mass species extinction explored academically during graduate study at the University of Montana (MS Environmental Studies 2007). At ex·tinc·tion wit·ness, Megan produces short poetic films and electronic posts that explore how other beings influence human potential and shape human meaning. Her poetry and prose exposes the roots of violent greed and encourages self-care and social responsibility during economic revolution and ecological transformation. Megan was the August 2015 featured artist at AELA Earth arts, a program out of Australia that nurtures the role of creativity in transforming law and governance. Megan can also be read at Elephant JournalDark Matter: Women Witnessing, and Dark Mountain Project.
