The Trembling Grass: Workshop

The Trembling Grass is a mixed-media exhibition that highlights conflicts between nature and humankind caused by climate change and the depletion of natural resources. Named after a line from a John Clare poem and displayed in the 150th anniversary year of this poet's death. Details of featured poets in the exhibition are being slowly revealed by means of a Poetry Striptease through posts on the Trembling Grass blog. Please check the blog’s posts to watch the roll call unravel!


Sat 25 Oct, 12pm – 4pm, The Hall, Exeter, FREE

Eco-poetry is the study of the ways that poetry can address ecological issues. Open to all, this workshop run by poets Elizabeth-Jane Burnett and Camilla Nelson will explore the ideas of eco-poetry and allow participants to experiment with the theme of conflict over natural resources.
