‘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 has listed my Iona courses among ‘the world’s [ten] best writing holidays’.

The last two opportunities to work with me till next spring are an eco-poetry half-day workshop in Exeter, Devon, on Sunday 10th November 2019; and my next yearlong Tongues in Trees online course that begins at the winter solstice 2019.

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.)

A message to those many of you who buy or have bought my books, come to my courses & retreats, or work online with me: just to thank you for your loyalty, kind words & presence over all these years. You are lovely people, & 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’).
