The Bristol Poetry Institute is pleased to be partnering with Lyra Bristol Poetry Festival to host this virtual conversation between BPI Executive Board member Madhu Krishnan and Bristol City Poet Caleb Parkin. Krishnan and Parkin will discuss the themes of reconnection, nature and poetry. What do we talk about when we talk about nature? Does nature really connect us, or does it also divide? Does “nature” even exist? This conversation will consider the ways in which poetry and nature intersect, and how the human and non-human environment is produced and reproduced, (be)laboured, (de)constructed and performed through language.

Bring a quote or poem of up to fifty words related to these themes and there’ll be chances to feed these into the conversation, keeping things live and lively. This event will be BSL interpreted.
