Alyson Hallett writes about stones and rocks and for the past twenty years she has curated an international poetry and public art project, The Migration Habits of Stones. She has previously talked about her work at The Geological Society of London and presented her ideas in an essay on Radio 3 and an audio-diary on Radio 4. Her work is infused by dreams and an understanding of stones as our oldest relatives. She brings the inanimate to life and challenges geologists to think more deeply – now is the time for deep thought. She was poet in residence in the Lyell Centre, Heriot-Watt University in 2019 and will be in conversation with Patrick Corbett who set up this unique poetry and geological residency which unearthed a few surprises.
