TREES - their 'awes and fascinations'

Menuhin Theatre, Portsmouth Central Library

This workshop will explore our deep-rooted relationship with trees, woods and forests. Why do trees have such a strong hold on our imagination and psyche? From climbing trees as children to walking in forests and parks, planting trees, hugging them, harvesting their fruit and products, or simply enjoying them in the landscape, trees occupy a significant place in our lives. They enable us to breathe and yet they are everywhere under threat.

In this workshop we’ll read a variety of poems about trees, experiment with memory and experience, use close observation, think about narrative, and apply imagination to creating inspired first drafts.

The workshop will be followed by a reading from ‘The Blue Tree’.

Stephen Boyce’s latest collection is The Blue Tree (Indigo Dreams 2019). He is a prize-winning and widely published poet and co-founder of Winchester Poetry Festival.
