Welcome ! Here is a podcast with poet Liz Lefroy
How would you write about – Michelangelo’s David, your son’s school concert, or a busker in London?
Liz tells us how she approaches a subject, and also treats us to some fact-based poems from her pamphlet Mending the Ordinary, and poems written about parts of an elephant skeleton, from a collaboration with photographer, Alex Ramsay.
In conversation with Nadia Kingsley, Liz Lefroy reads and discusses some of her poems, and how she writes.

The Maligned Species project is a free online resource and opportunity – involving both ecologists and poets : encouraging poetry-writing by YOU on the subject of spiders, frogs, stinging nettles, and grey squirrels – culminating in four poetry ebooks.
Submissions (free) for poetry with a scientific slant, on these four species will be open in January 2016 at www.fairacrepress.co.uk.
