Confluences: Human Geography

Monday 18 October 2021, 8pm-9pm
Livestreamed via Zoom
Pay what you feel (booking required)
In this online event, join writers who engage with the environment in incisive, wise and surprising ways.

Plastiglomerate finds our world in the midst of environmental disaster: from plastic pollution and wrecked shipping to fires in the Amazon rainforest. In this ‘engaging and unsettling’ collection, geographer-poet Tim Cresswell writes with the forensic eye of a professional, bending the hard vocabulary of science into a jagged but compelling lyric that telescopes from the vast to the cellular in the space of a line.

Following her groundbreaking 2014 début An Aviary of Small Birds, Karen McCarthy Woolf returns with Seasonal Disturbances. Set against a backdrop of ecological and emotional turbulence, these poems are charged yet meditative explorations of nature, the city, and the self.

The conversation will be chaired by creative producer and ‘cultural omnivore’ Georgia Attlesey and will feature readings from each writer.

This is an online event that will be conducted via Zoom.

Tickets are pay as you feel.
