Event description

“Life is a spell so exquisite,” Emily Dickinson wrote, “that everything conspires to break it.”

“Poetry recasts life’s spell. Without poetry, something essentially human goes unsaid and unlived; something inside us goes unloved. Without poetry, our lives and the world we live them in fall out of step with the lyric creation runs on. Poetry—reading it, sharing it, making it—answers the ontological crisis of our times, a profound loneliness (from our selves and our places and our times) caused by the silencing of the lyric in our daily lives and discourses, caused by the digital orthodoxies that rule our days; and caused also by our dislocation from country - from any place we might call truly home. Poetry, in other words, lets us live again the lives we are too busy leading to enjoy. The soul arrives at the pace of a camel; poetry is the soul’s gait, the rhythm of arrival, a hearth”.

Mark Tredinnick’s work is acclaimed for its intricate study of human relationships to place, and the natural world.

As we seek to reconnect deeply with ‘other’ and each other, Mark’s ideas, poetry, prose and thinking is a radical invitation to reset yourself, recast life’s spell on you.

Join Dumbo Feather and Talking Sticks for fine wine, carefully curated menu of food and an intimate night of poetry and sharing.

The evening will take you on a lyric and poetic odyssey, where you might also share your own poetry and thoughts.
