IAS faculty member Ching-In Chen has been commissioned as a Writing the Land poet to write poems about Misery Point Preserve for the Great Peninsula Conservancy in Kitsap County.

Writing the Land partners with various nonprofit and environmental organizations to coordinate the “adoption” of conserved lands for poets. Each poet is paired with and visits the land to create work inspired by place and preservation. Poems created are available to the land protection organizations for use in their media and outreach and are printed in anthologies which help raise awareness of the importance for land conservation and for fundraising.
