Mine, all mine: entitlement and landscape

Conceived and hosted by our Writer-in-Residence, poet Lydia Kennaway, this is the fifth instalment of ‘Footloose’, a monthly online event using the subject of walking as a way to explore our inner landscapes. Lydia will read poems from her pamphlet, A History of Walking, and will talk to poets and other writers about words and walking.

In June, her guest is Jake Morris-Campbell, with poems exploring ideas of ownership in both the urban and rural landscape. There will be flaneurs, a solitary woman, and a ‘ …pilgrimage/ by a man of dubious faith / stuffed on cereal bars…’

Jake Morris-Campbell, has published his first poetry book, “Corrigenda for Costafine Town” which is inspired by South Shields in the north east of England – the place where he grew up. His walking piece “Waking the Ghosts of the Durham Coalfields” on was recently broadcast on BBC Radio 3 The Essay (and is available as a podcast on BBC Sounds).

Order a copy of “A History of Walking” and “Corrigenda for Costafine Town” from our bookshelf.

Please pay what you can afford – we’ve set the bar low at €1 euro – revenues will go towards remunerating the poets. We are running an experiment to boost promotion for this event, so if you wish, you can log in to Eventbrite and and book a free ticket there, however, you won’t benefit from joining our 3k+ community of walking artists, performers and writers unless you register here.
