Book Launch of Earth Lines: Geopoetry and Geopoetics

1 October 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Join Patrick Corbett and other contributors online to celebrate the launch of Earth Lines: Geopoetry and Geopoetics published by the Edinburgh Geological Society. This is a book that explores the stratigraphy of the poetry in rocks and stones.

“A pleasure to hold, a delight to behold.” Kenneth White, Founder of the International Institute of Geopoetics.

“Earth Lines is a delightful outcrop of poetry and prose.” Elsa Panciroli, Scottish Geology Trust

Earth Lines grew out of a Geopoetry event hosted by the Geological Society of London on 1 October 2020, and is a compilation of poetry and essays on the broadest theme of geoscience.

More details of the publication, including a selection of audio and video recordings of some of the poems and poets featured in Earth Lines, including some additional poems and a geopoetry map, are available on the dedicated Earth Lines page of Edinburgh Geological Society website. The book is available to purchase from there.
