ALL OUR RELATIONS: TONGUES IN TREES
outdoor writing workshop
2018: SUNDAY 6th May, tbc)
Details tba; probably in a wood on the eastern edge of Dartmoor
Spring, it is said, walks towards us at 2mph. Come and meet spring and the new growth of Eostre, time of the Mother Goddess with all the fertility and fecundity of this time of year, in this hidden part of the South Hams. Climb into the skin of hazel, gorse, celandine, apple tree, pebble, hare, magpie, wild garlic, new bluebell, returning swallow. NB In 2018, after the success of 2017, we will be focusing primarily on trees. Give them a voice.
Come and look with wilder eyes, listen with the ears of a poet, loosen the grip of personness. Come and refind your deep connection with ‘our other relations’, and write.
This is about exploration, so you don’t need any expertise in story-writing or poetry – just a willingness to bring an open heart – and a notebook. (You also don’t need to be involved in the Transition Town network to sign up for this workshop.)
YOU’LL NEED TO BRING WARM CLOTHES, WATERPROOFS AND STURDY BOOTS, and SOMETHING TO SIT ON.
