Event description
Please join us for our second exciting eco-poetry writing course at the pioneering and beautiful Knepp Wildland near Horsham, W. Sussex.

About this Event

Connections: this 6 week course will start on Saturday 2nd May with a Walking Safari led by one of Knepp’s expert ecologists, and will continue on Wednesday evenings, with inspiring individual and collaborative writing exercises both inside and outside. Since early 2018, Kay Syrad & Clare Whistler have led eco-poetry courses at ONCA arts centre in Brighton, Aldeburgh Poetry Festival and Sussex Wildlife Trust at Rye Harbour Nature Reserve. Their eco-poetry series Changing Everything Carefully* is based on an international range of poetry and creative ideas about how we can reckon with the current eco-challenges that we all face.

A participant who attended last year's Knepp course described it as ‘a wild wording catapulting delight!' Another said it was a ‘wonderfully inspiring and mind-opening course. I feel extremely fortunate to be part of it and it has given me something to truly look forward to and feel optimistic about each week’.

All welcome.

We will then meet weekly in the early evening (6 – 9pm) from Weds 13th May for 5 weeks, finishing 10th June.

Cost: £190, to include the cost of the safari.
