Welcome ! Here is a podcast with poet Nadia Kingsley.
How would you write about –the Common Mouse Ear plant, the Andromeda Galaxy, or wildlife within a project about Olympic athletes?
Nadia tells us how she approaches a subject, and also treats us to some fact-based poems from Shropshire Butterflies, Lawn Lore, e-x-p-a-n-d-i-n-g: The history of the Universe in 45 minutes, Road Kill and a monthly herbal blog on rootstohealth.co.uk
In conversation with Tom Wentworth, Nadia shares how she is preparing to write poems about Spiders, Frogs, Stinging Nettles, Grey Squirrels.Download the Podcast
