Immerse yourself in the profound exploration of hidden ecologies and myth-making with poet Ella Duffy in a distinctive workshop, presented in collaboration with Magma.

Scheduled for Saturday, 24th February, from 9:30 am to 11:30 am (In-Person), and Monday, 19th February, from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm (Online), participants will be guided through dark, damp landscapes to discover the concealed wonders beneath our feet.

With a thematic focus on ecologies, groundwork, concealed networks, and myth-making, the workshop delves into the intricate interplay between subject and object, above and below. Ella Duffy’s guidance will navigate participants through the rich tapestry of human and more-than-human archetypes, particularly those manifesting beneath the surface.

The culmination of this poetic exploration will find its place in Magma 88: Underworld, slated for publication in March 2024. Curated by Kate Simpson, the Editor of ‘Out of Time: Poetry from the Climate Emergency,’ this workshop represents an exceptional opportunity to engage with the hidden facets of our natural world.
