Cath Drake | The Climate of Change Poetry Reading (Online)

As Margaret Atwood says: ‘ I think calling it climate change is rather limiting. I would rather call it everything change. ‘Time is running out. We need more healthy, creative and sustainable visions of our world, to look more deeply at our place in the world in this time of climate and environmental crisis. We must also care for ourselves and others, and envisage a more just world. Join Cath Drake, feature reader, Craig Santos Perez and a selection of poets from across the UK & Europe who will read their poems from The Climate of Change Poetry Challenge (workshop participants). Poets have been working together during period of sustained creativity in October & November. More poets to be announced! This event is FREE.
