Miriam Darlington is an author and poet, and teaches creative writing at Plymouth University. Her book Otter Country, a nature memoir about travelling across Britain in search of the wild otter was published to great acclaim in 2012. She has one collection of poetry, Windfall, published in 2008, and is working on another. Fascinated with wildlife, and a lifelong conservation campaigner, she writes a regular column in the Times, the renowned Nature Notebook.

Ecopoetry expresses our connection with nature and our concern for every aspect of the natural world. During this workshop we will try an inspiring, fun and exciting exercise as a catalyst to try out writing some poetry about a particular aspect of the wild. No experience required, just bring a pen and an open mind.

All workshops will take place in the Garden Room at Coleridge Cottage and can be booked at the cottage or by telephoning 01278 732662. There is a maximum number of 12 participants per workshop.
