Women Writing the Wild

Bristol Women's Literature Festival

Panel Discussion

Sun 29 March 18:00

Waterside 3, Watershed

Duration:
90 mins

This one’s for the lovers of nature and wild spaces. What role can literature play in engaging us with the natural world and raising awareness of the devastating effects of the climate crisis? How can spending time in the wild improve our mental and physical well-being? Why has nature writing traditionally been dominated by male voices? And what can we do as individuals to protect our beautiful, wild planet?

Dr Samantha Walton (Bath Spa University) talks to Sara Maitland (Gossip from the Forest; How to be Alone), Lia Leendertz (The Almanac series), Isabel Hardman (The Natural Health Service, Why We Get The Wrong Politicians, The Spectator) and Zakiya McKenzie (writer-in-residence for the Forestry Commission) in what is sure to be an illuminating and inspiring conversation.
