Poetry Celebration: Nature and the Environment

An online celebration of poetry in place of this year's Stratford-upon-Avon Poetry Festival, featuring new poetry from Trudy Howson and Liz Berry

Nature has long been a source of inspiration for art in all its forms. Poetry can invite us to seek refuge in the soothing balm that nature offers during troubling times, or be a powerful force for inciting change as environmental concerns come to the forefront. It can hold up a reflection of our inner natures, or invite us to look outside of ourselves to gain a new understanding of the world around us.

We invited you to share your poems with us, and we're delighted to share new works by Trudy Howson and Liz Berry.

We’re working hard to bring some Shakespeare into your life during the lockdown. All our content is offered free, but if you’re in a position to donate and help us keep our virtual doors open, we would really appreciate it!  Thank you.

Help us keep Shakespeare's story alive
