Contemporary Approaches to Ecopoetry: A Ginkgo Prize Workshop

Contemporary Approaches to Ecopoetry: A Ginkgo Prize Workshop

Explore different contemporary approaches to ecopoetry

By writing new poems that reflect on our experiences in landscapes and with the nonhuman, this workshop will focus on how a self-reflexive ecopoetics can illuminate our individual relationships with ecology.

How might our unique ways of seeing the world, and the language we use to represent it, suggest a spectrum of feeling and thought – and how can we interpret an environmental ethic from this, if we should?

Saturday 10 August, 10.30am – 1pm. The session will take place at The Pen Museum, Unit 3, The Argent Centre, 60 Frederick St, Birmingham B1 3HS.

The Ginkgo Prize, organised by the Poetry School, is the world’s largest prize for ecopoetry.
