Event Details


Mandy Haggith leads a poetry workshop focusing on how to create poems, what is it to be inspired.  The tree of the day is Elder, a particulary beautiful native tree.

Using new media, four poets will document their experiences during month-long residencies at each of the four gardens of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh -  Sue Butler at Benmore, Argyll in June; Mandy Haggith in Edinburgh in July; Jean Atkin in Logan, Dumfries and Galloway in August and Gerry Loose at Dawyck in the Borders in September.

Walking With Poets, takes writing about the landscape into the twenty-first century.  It is a collaboration between the Scottish Poetry Library, the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh and Cove Park, and funded by a Creative Scotland Year of Natural Scotland Award.
