We are witness to the increasing catalogue of environmental writing prompted by the climate and ecological emergency…this evening showcases poetry from the floor in response to this emergency and celebrates nature and concern for the planet through many different voices.
Join Jane Lovell, winner of the Ginkgo poetry prize 2020 and the Rialto Nature & Place poetry prize 2022, for an evening of poetry at Trinity Theatre, Tunbridge Wells.

Poets for the Planet is a community of kindred poets, performers, artists and creative activists raising their voices to engage with climate and ecological emergency through poetry in all its forms.
