We are inviting submissions of poetry and prose with nature and the natural world as its focus. The work collected will celebrate green space, woodland and forested areas and their continued importance, in support of the work of The Tree Charter, with The Woodland Trust leading a call to create a Charter for Trees, Woods and People that will redefine the relationship between trees and people in the UK for the future. (Further details here.) What continues to resonate with you when you engage with these environments, and what loss would the erosion of these constitute?
Expression and performance are also at the heart of this, and contributors are encouraged to submit a video or audio recording along with their work. This is not a mandatory requirement for inclusion, but selected contributors will be invited to perform their work at a live event in Bute Park, Cardiff, on 15th April.
