Embrace investigates our relation with woodlands. Shaped as a conversation between those woodlands and her fictional self, this narrative poem explores different ways in which such relation can be shaped and ultimately proposes a deep, embodied sense of belonging. Embrace was written with financial support from Aberdeen City Council and formed the culmination of the project Alder and Aspen. The poem is available via Lulu Publishing and Amazon.
