Eco-Poetry Workshop

6 April 2023

Ecopoetry workshop for young people with Wendy Constance 

Saturday 17th June, 2-4pm, Free, drop-in

Join Essex environmental writer and artist Wendy Constance for a fun family drop-in session where you think of words and phrases that reveal your concern for planet Earth and all her inhabitants. Whether it be insects from beetles to butterflies; animals from badgers to rabbits and mice; crabs, fish, dolphins; trees, plants, fungi; shells and pebbles on the beach. Whatever you care about in the natural world. Compose a sentence or two, then write it on one of the strips of paper. Wendy will collate the strips to weave together at the end of the session, to create a community poem celebrating the natural world. A world we humans share with the more-than-humans. The resulting poem to be recited after the book launch.

The Eco-Poetry Workshop is brought to you by Essex Book Festival in partnership with Maldon District CVS.

This eco-poetry workshop is going to be part of a weekend of events and activities taking place at Othona Community to celebrate the launch of St Peter-on-the-Wall: Landscape and Heritage on the Essex Coast edited by Johanna Dale. For more details on all the weekend events click here.
