Poemish of the Wildland is an anthology of poems written during an eco-poetry course, Changing Everything Carefully,* at Knepp Wildland, led by the collaborative partnership, kin’d & kin’d, in the summer of 2019.  Over six weeks, the poets worked experimentally, inside and outside, to apprehend and embody in their writing the beauty and ethos of Knepp.

 

Kay Syrad & Clare Whistler

 

* e.e. cummings

 

 

 

In Poemish of the Wildland we haven’t attributed the poems – considering that the eco-context and the collective experience each week produced the poems as much as, or perhaps more than, individual experience.
