Dorset based poetry magazine Tears in the Fence has, since it began in 1984, had a long association with environmental causes. It holds an annual poetry festival in Stourpaine which it hopes to resume this year. In the meantime, it offers a one-day Zoom poetry conference on Saturday May 8.
As humanity looks forward to a possible emergence from the pandemic, can we rebuild our society more sustainably and more humanely than what has gone before? Does our poetry have a part to play in changing our ways?
10am: ‘Realignment With Nature’
2pm: ‘Healing and Renewal’
7pm: ‘New Beginnings’.
Poets reading include Jess Mookherjee, Lesley Harrison and Mandy Haggith. For details: https://tearsinthefence.com/festival Use the 'Donate' button to book (suggested donation £15).
An inspiring green-themed programme of online events will include films, nature and wildlife talks, children’s craft sessions and more – all designed to encourage and equip us to live more sustainably and build a more hope-filled future. Just like spring greens, Wimborne Spring Green Festival will do you good!
The festival runs from 17-24 April.
