‘Like the philosopher Simone Weil, another great teacher, Angwin is dedicated to encouraging the arts of reading, looking, listening, and of reflection, of really paying attention – arts which can be developed – as input to the writing. And, like her book [Writing the Bright Moment], she is truly an inspiration.’ Katherine Gallagher

JUNE 2019: I’m delighted to say that The Telegraph (Travel section) has listed my Iona courses among ‘the world’s [ten] best writing holidays’.

During the early part of 2020, I’m concentrating on two things only: my Tongues in Trees yearlong course, and the book that is related to this. I’m not taking on new work in terms of mentoring, appraisals or workshops; the next weeklong courses will be my Iona retreats in April and May.

Available as a PDF for Imbolc (2nd February), or Candlemas, a one-day self-guided retreat. THRESHOLDS has been one of my most popular workshops for over 20 years.

You can listen to my long Dartmoor poem River Suite here (approx. 12 minutes. Switch off the lights, close your eyes, and let the moor take you.)

To those of you who have attended my courses or worked with me in other ways this year or previously, I’m sending you warmth and blessings for this new year. I’m constantly aware of the community of the ‘shaping spirit of imagination’ that we co-create.

*Most of my work now concerns itself with deepening a holistic relationship with the rest of the natural world, a matter of urgency if we want to stop destroying our home. Generally, my ‘way in’, for myself & those who work with me, is the creative process of engagement, exploration, enquiry & expression through writing. All my work is soulwork, in effect. Our relationship with the other-than-human is made more explicit on my other site, The Wild Ways (‘ecosoul: the ecological imagination’).

Please refresh these pages when you visit, as I’m constantly updating and adding to them. If you would like to be informed of new events, you can use the Contact form to send your email address.
