Welcome ! Here is a podcast with poet Andrew Fusek Peters.
How would you write about – a blackbird, a hare or write a poem about knitting that at its heart is about the environment?
Andrew tells us how he approaches a subject, reads poems about a heron and a salmon, and reveals how for him his poetry-writing comes from the same inner place as his landscape and wildlife photography.
In conversation with Nadia Kingsley, Andrew Fusek Peters reads and discusses some of his poems, and how he writes.

Submissions (free) for poetry with a scientific slant, on these four species will be open in January 2016 at www.fairacrepress.co.uk.
