NB November 2018: my article on Sacred Feminine Sacred Masculine has just appeared in the Winter edition of Green Spirit magazine. It’s also available from me as a download – please ask.

My own writing: I’m currently finishing the final draft of my Forest book, which looks as if it has found a publisher. More anon! And meantime a plant-based cookbook is making itself felt.

My most exciting new project, other than the half-completed companion book to the tree book I’ve almost finished writing (memoir and the lost feminine, set and written in an enchanted Brittany forest), is my new year-long distance learning TONGUES IN TREES project. This began with the full moon of the winter solstice 2018, and will happen again beginning at the same date in 2019.


I, along with the previous and the succeeding writers-in-residence, am appearing at the first ever Greenway Literary Festival (my date is 8th June, morning). Greenway was the summer home of Agatha Christie, and I was privileged to be writer-in-residence last winter.

June 23rd, Dartmoor: Tongues in Trees full day outdoor poetry workshop (full with waiting list)

July 7th, East Devon: the 2nd in a series of 3 poetry-in-nature half-days (you can attend just the one).

Sunday November 10th, Exeter Literary Festival eco-poetry workshop.

A Trick of the Light: poems from Iona is available to order from Pindrop Press.

ISLANDS OF THE HEART on the Isle of Iona: the two weeks in April and May in 2020 are full, but do add your name to my waiting list. I’m taking bookings now for 2021, and hopefully there will, as this year, again be an autumn week.
