Responding to a changing world through the written word

Read the course outline (pdf)

Join this online course with science communicator and poet Sam Illingworth to explore reading, analysing and writing poetry on the theme of climate change. Inspired by the COP26 climate change conference taking place in Glasgow, this course will enable participants to have discussions about the existing narratives around climate change, the global efforts to alleviate it, and ideas about personal responsibility. Participants will use poetry to consider how climate change can be contextualised, communicated and responded to on a personal and global level.

This course takes place on Zoom and we will email you a joining link the day before. It is a fully interactive course with the opportunity to speak to your fellow participants in break-out rooms, practical guidance in reading and writing poetry, with tutor Sam answering your questions throughout.

Live captions will be provided by Stagetext.
