Giant Steps… 50 poets on the moon landing and beyond 

Giant Steps: 50 poets reflect on the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing and beyond (Recent Work Press, Canberra, 2019) – a richly thoughtful anthology that goes beyond the historic occasion to explore our relationships with Space.

And a couple of poems, recorded as my way of being at the launch event in Canberra, are here:

Voices of the Earth – making poetry and art at Woodbrooke

2nd - 6th September 2019

Last chance to book this year for this creative exploration of our relationships with the world we inhabit. The course uses the rich resources of the Woodbrooke Quaker study centre in Birmingham, with art room and extensive gardens.  We'll work with poetry and a range of media and art forms, individually and collaboratively, to recharge our ways of seeing.

Tutors: Philip Gross is a Quaker, poet, prose writer, and until recently, Professor of Creative Writing at the University of South Wales. Zélie Gross is a Quaker writer and editor, with a background in making and teaching of visual arts. She brings skills in exploratory group work in her teaching.
