About the Author

Michelle Berry Lane

Michelle’s writing weaves together themes of ecology, spirituality and personal connection with the natural world. She has been an elementary science and nature studies educator for over 30 years, teaching these topics to children, and undergraduate and graduate students in education. The heart of her work with her students has been to stimulate wonder about the interconnection of life on earth and to provide opportunities for connection with the natural world.

She is a camper, a woods ambler, a wild food forager, yoga practitioner and a lover of art, music, books and good food. Michelle lives in the Detroit area (previously a territory inhabited by the Anishinaabe people). Currently, she is studying Theopoetics and Writing at The Earlham School of Religion in Richmond, IN. You can find her work on Medium (https://medium.com/@berrywoman08) and some of her poetry has been published by “The Ibis Head Review” (Vol 3:2), “The Wayfarer” (Vol 6:2) and in Ireland in “Woodland: The Magazine of the Native Woodland Trust” (Fall 2016 & Spring 2017).
