Moth Write Poetry Workshop - University of ExeterWorkshop Thu 3 Oct 2019, 18:30 – 22:30
University of Exeter
Exeter, Devon EX4 4QR
Join poet Fiona Benson and entomologist Clive Betts for a fabulous moth-write in the spectacular University of Exeter grounds. We will be light-trapping moths and other night-bugs for close observation, and writing poems towards the specimens we catch.
Open to everyone aged 18+, this workshop is great if you are interested in bugs, poems or the environment, or 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 for our Arts Commission 2019-20, #projecturgency.
Time: 6.30 - 10.30 pm, Thursday 3rd October
Meeting place: Reed Hall front steps (for a wet weather alternative please meet at the Forum Help Desk at the centre of the campus. We will contact you in advance should this be the case.)
Bring: warm and wet weather clothes, sturdy shoes, a torch, notebook and pen. Please bring own snack as needed, refreshments will be available to purchase.
