Rev. Marti Keller – Poet

“The heart of my vocational life is to bear authentic and courageous witness.”

“As the daughter and sister of biologists and bird researchers, my poetry has been infused with references to birds, wilderness, natural settings and cycles.  The Wilderness Act Performance Series will give me some much needed grounding in the ecology of the Southern Piedmont area, will enhance my writing, and help me complete the collection of poems ‘Life Lists’.”
