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. A review of the poem can be found on the Sphinx website.
Embrace is available via Lulu Publishing and Amazon.
