Please join us for a reading by Fall '21 Visiting Writer Janisse Ray!


Janisse Ray is a writer whose subject is often nature. Her first book, Ecology of a Cracker Childhood, was named a New York Times Notable Book and the Book All Georgians Should Read. She has published seven other books. Her collection of essays, Wild Spectacle, is forthcoming from Trinity University Press in October 2021. Ray has won a Pushcart Prize, an American Book Award, and a Southern Environmental Law Center Writing Award, among others. She lives on an organic farm inland from Savannah, Georgia.


Ray will be teaching two classes with The Porch this fall, "Following Golden Threads" (10/2) and "Turning Ideas Into Essays and Other Nonfiction Forms" (10/30), the latter of which will be followed by the reading at our headquarters in Berry Hill.
