Moth Write Poetry Workshop at AmbiosWorkshop Sun 6 Oct 2019, 18:30 – 22:30
Lower Sharpham Farm
Totnes TQ9 7DX
Join poet Fiona Benson and entomologist Fraser Rush for a fabulous moth-write on the truly beautiful Ambios Conservation Farm in the heart of the Sharpham Estate. We will be light-trapping moths and other night-bugs for close observation, and writing poems towards the specimens we catch. There will also be a chance to examine specimens under the microscope and write towards the wonders that we see. Open to everyone - great if you are interested in bugs, poems or the environment, or if you are just creatively curious.
There will be further opportunities for bug-writes throughout the year, and you may if you choose submit your poem for the chance to be professionally recorded and audio-designed as part of an online audio-pamphlet of insect poems.
Bring warm clothes, a torch, notebook and a pen.
Meeting place: The Linhay Building, Ambios, Lower Shaprham Farm, Ashprington, Totnes
