Conceived and hosted by our Writer-in-Residence, poet Lydia Kennaway, this is the seventh and final 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 September, her guest is poet, walker, runner and climber Helen Mort. She will be reading her poem ‘Miss Jemima’s Swiss Journal – after Jemima Morrell and her tour of the Alps, 1863’. Helen spent a week in Switzerland dressed in crinolines and repeating part of Jemima’s trip on foot across the Alps. Lydia will read ‘Advice to Women Walking After Dark’ before the conversation turns to the conventions, interpretations and restrictions of the clothes women wear while walking.
