The Poetry of Science with Sam Illingworth and Helen Mort

In this course, internationally renowned scientists, poets, and science-poets will provide an introduction to the links between science and poetry, and how the two disciplines can work together to better understand the world and the way in which we live. Participants will have the opportunity to work on poems that help to communicate and re-consider scientific topics, and will be provided with feedback and advice on how to make them more effective, engaging and empathetic.

Led by scientist (and science-poet) Sam Illingworth and the Manchester Writing School poet Helen Mort.
