From writing about nature to museum networks and poetry
The June programme of #UKGermany2018 celebrated some unique voices and put us in contact with inspiring individuals once again.
In association with 'dasumweltinstitut' (the Environment Institute), we held three free nature writing workshops in Munich, ahead of our British Council Nature Writing Seminar. These workshops were run by environmental journalist and educationalist Dr. Torsten Schäfer and one of our #BritLitMunich authors, poet Helen Mort. Outstanding young poet Josefine Stargardt (21) took part in one of our Nature Writing workshops in Munich. Read her poem 'Leftovers', produced during the workshop, by clicking on the document at the bottom of the page.
"Leading workshops along with Professor Torsten Schäfer was an enjoyable, thought-provoking experience too, debating the place of urban nature writing. It was a really rewarding seminar." - Helen Mort, #BritLitMunich author and workshop leader
