Footprints on the Edge
This collaborative essay, which sits at the nexus of creative writing, nature writing and animal studies, seeks to explore the question of how we might live ethically and joyfully in the context of anthropogenic climate change. Engaging with the fields of creative non-fiction, philosophy, memoir and literature review, the essay asks how we might address this question together, as writers, thinkers, artists, and living beings alongside many others, both human and more-than-human. The authors explore their relationship with the ocean, animals and each other, combining walking and writing as part of the same process. Here, walking serves as a pivotal immersive writing process as well as a creative tool. Alongside sharing ways of thinking, the essay argues the importance of acknowledging oneself as a writer situated in a particular place and time. ¶.
