Walking With Poets: A Celebration
Thursday, 28 November 2013 at 18:30 (GMT)
Scotland, Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Please note: Entry only via RBGE Staff Offices at 20A Inverleith Row (look out for the flags!), Edinburgh EH3 5LR.
This summer, the SPL has placed poets and their iPads in the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh's four Gardens across Scotland in a project that re-invents nature writing for the 21st century. In Benmore, Edinburgh, Logan and Dawyck, the poets have used blogs, Twitter and Facebook to give voice to nature. At this celebration, Sue Butler, Mandy Haggith, Jean Atkin and Gerry Loose will read poems inspired by their residencies and share stories about their time in the RBGE's four Gardens.
Also at the WWP celebration we will also be launching Into the Forest, a new anthology of tree poems edited by Mandy Haggith, published by Saraband.
There will also be the chance to book in for a tour of the Botanic Garden Library before the event, though there will be a limited capacity. More details to come.
This project has been made possible thanks to: Year of Natural Scotland funding from Creative Scotland, and additional support from the Big Give donors and Cove Park.
