It shed a light on the literary movement and introduced prominent UK authors to the German audience for readings, workshops and discussions in the heart of Munich as well as in the Bavarian nature of Stiftung Nantesbuch. We were delighted to host UK authors Nancy Campbell, Horatio Clare, Helen MacDonald, Sarah Hall and Helen Mort at our seminar, 7-9 June 2018. They were chaired by British author Robert Macfarlane, who led our panel discussions.
"I want to thank you for the opportunity to follow the nature writing seminar online via livestream. Making the films available via YouTube is a great gift. Altogether, the whole event seemed like being planned and shaped with an immense and valuable generosity [...] – the fact that interested audiences from all over the world were able to join in via the screen underlines this." - Livestream viewer
