Walton, S (2016) Roundtable/Poetry readings. In: Poetry, Creativity and Environment, 26 - 27 February 2016, University of Leeds.


Performed a poetry reading and also participated in a round table session in which the poets reflected on their creative processes.

Item Type: Conference or Workshop Item (Other)

This symposium brought together poets, established scholars, and Early Career Researchers to explore the interface between poetry and the environment. It focused in particular on the creative process and considered how poetry and the natural world are in reciprocal engagement in the business of composition. One of its primary concerns was to discern whether there are distinctive aspects to the writing of poetry in the context of environment and in the wider frame of eco-poetics. This included both critical and creative questions, including the politics of environmental emergency, forms and techniques of individual practice, and modes of specific work.

Poets include: Madeleine Lee, Lucy Burnett, Harriet Tarlo, Zoe Skoulding, Amy Cutler, Yvonne Reddick, Melanie Challenger, and Samantha Walton.
