Contemporary poetry with an environmental twist 

In the Artshed

Sunday 8th October 2.00 – 3.30pm   £6

New Release:  Gorwelion Shared Horizons 
an anthology of new writing.
At this event, Robert Minhinnick,  editor of the anthology, acclaimed poet, prose writer and environmental campaigner will be joined by Border Poets Chris Kinsey and Jean Atkin for readings.

Chris Kinsey will read new poems about our local climate changes along with some from her collection, From Rowan Ridge.

Jean Atkin will read from her imminent third collection ‘High Nowhere’ – poems about climate change, loss of biodiversity, energy and how we live with it all. Her invented ‘High Nowhere’ is an imaginary place name, a marker for what’s at stake.  The roots of High Nowhere spring from a journey in Iceland during the Covid years.  

The charity Sustainable Wales produced Gorwelion Shared HorizonsG with Parthian Books to coincide with the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow, November 2021. Writers from India, Wales and Scotland describe the effects of climate change on their home areas.
