Festival of Ideas Nature Writing Day
Bristol was central to the birth of Romanticism. William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge stayed and worked in the city; the first edition of the Lyrical Ballads was published in Bristol. The Festival of Ideas programme for spring 2015 takes inspiration from the Romantics to focus on nature and the emotions, place and the environment
In the year when Bristol is European Green Capital, this special series will create a new battle of ideas about Bristol, society and the world. Today's events look at how nature has inspired writers of poetry and prose, contributed to personal healing and provided a new approach for environmental campaigns. For further events in this series, please visit ideasfestival.co.uk
This day is supported by and part of Bristol European Green Capital 2015.
