Publicity material for this event says:

As someone said about John Ashbery, ‘It takes a kind of courage to write simply about trees.’ Trees offer themselves almost too easily to poets. Spanning centuries, putting down roots, returning to life in the spring, branching out, bearing fruit, sheltering fairy-tale children, they seem to turn into metaphors while they’re still in the ground. Can we find a way to let trees simply be trees as well as everything else? We will look at some of the things that have been done, by John Ashbery, Robert Frost, Seamus Heaney, Charlotte Mew and others, and then write and discuss our own tree poems.

One all-day workshop on Saturday 31 March 10:30am – 4:30pm.
