The Woods of Hazel poetry booklets

This anthology of poetry by Sarah Watkinson and Romola Parish is one outcome from the newly-established Writers' Residency at Wytham Woods. This sequence of poems uses the Renga-style writing, a Japanese scholarly poetic form enabling poets with different backgrounds to explore a creative common ground.

"How deeply we humans are connected with, and often tragically distanced from, the natural world is the leitmotif of this enchanting collaboration between a plant scientist and a landscape historian, whose purpose is to celebrate and commemorate Wytham Woods in Oxfordshire, England. Their dialogue-in-poetry explores with precision of thought and image the multifarious ways in which the ecologies of people and woodland are inextricably intertwined and interdependent. This beautiful book succeeds in being truly 'a landscape for legions'." - Lesley Saunders.

Selling for £6.99, your purchase will support outdoor education for young people of all backgrounds, as for each copy sold, £5 will be donated to Hill End Charitable Trust. The price is inclusive of postage and packing costs.
