From “The Sierra: A History”

Not long after lightning has rushed down

the electric staircase of its own making,

not long after fires three stories tall have swept

up-canyon, a new season the size of pearls begins.

Wildlife Biologist and Writer

Maya Khosla is currently the Poet Laureate of Sonoma County (2018 – 2020). Her new collection of poems, All the Fires of Wind and Light, is forthcoming from Sixteen Rivers Press in 2019. A wildlife biologist and writer, her work takes her to wilderness areas, to the page and to the screen. She has documented forests, fire scientists and firefighters talking about ways to be wise about wildfire. Maya’s work has taken her across coastal India, Kenya, and the United States. 

 

 

Writing

Maya’s new collection of poems is All the Fires of Wind and Light (Sixteen Rivers Press, 2019). Her poems have also been collected in Keel Bone (Dorothy Brunsman Poetry Prize, Bear Star Press) and in Heart of the Tearing (Red Dust Press). Her essays have appeared in Flyway, Yes Magazine, Humans and Nature, and elsewhere. She has written for the films Village of Dust, City of Water, and Shifting Undercurrents, and is working on a film about being Firewise in a time of climate change.

 

Being Firewise

Firewise: The Scientists Speak will be the second film about wildfire. Leading scientists and firefighters tell their stories and explain the best available science about one of the most misunderstood forces of nature.

 

Searching for the Gold Spot: The Wild After Wildfire is devoted to the wild after wildfire. Supported by Patagonia, the Sacramento Audubon Society, Environment Now and Fund for Wild Nature, and sponsored by From the Heart Productions, the film is being screened in film festivals and other venues across the United States.
