About the Event
Our poetry workshop, a classic or modern poem is proposed for discussion as we sit under the trees absorbing the special atmosphere around the campfire.
Our poe-TREE workshops are hosted by Nadira Wallace, PhD student at the Royal Holloway, University of London and co-organiser of the Ecopoetics' seminar series 'Green Blues'. Nadira teaches us how to engage in a poetic dialogue with our natural surroundings, looking at 18th-century poems up to the present day.

Light refreshments provided.
We welcome suggestions for topics and ideas from you!
