During an interdisciplinary conference at the Geological Society, ‘Poetry and Geology: A Celebration’, the Society’s President Dr Bryan Lovell threw out the following challenge: ‘I hope that our poetry will help to establish true environmental conviction where our scientific prose has failed us’. Over the next year or so I plan to take up that that challenge by producing a new body of poetic work which will explore the geology of climate change.
I am grateful for the support of Grants for the Arts:
