On May 13th, we hosted the first Loop in the Landscape outdoor writing workshop at Stonehenge.
We enjoyed an afternoon of bright sunlight and clear views across from the early twentieth-century silage silos to the gap in the woods, cleared in the 1980s so that the ancient Cursus earthwork might run uninterrupted between Stonehenge and Woodhenge.
Wrote wrote in long lines and wrote on the move.
We talked and wrote in radiant circles, frisbeeing colourful hoops like surveyors’ quadrats from the tops of barrows and writing detailed poems about the little landscapes that they landed on. We turned things upside down in magnifying lenses and looked to the distance to look for childhood homes and future road tunnel entrances.
All of the participants’ work will be included in LOOP, our publication, and we are excited to be working on the images of the event and the writing with artist + writer Ellen Wilkinson.
Our next workshop will be on Sunday 9th July and tickets are now available.
