The Lesser Trodden Path: Writing about our changing world
In Twelve Words for Moss and Sarn Helen, writers Elizabeth-Jane Burnett and Tom Bullough take the reader on a journey through the natural world.
Travelling through wetlands from Somerset to County Tyrone, in Twelve Words for Moss, Elizabeth-Jane Burnett sings the unsung beauty of the natural world, finding comfort from grief after the loss of her father and inspiration from the resilience of the plant life around her.
In Sarn Helen, Tom Bullough walks the old Roman Road that runs from the south of Wales to the north. As he walks, he reflects on the changing landscape around him and how we are shaped by place, offering a warning from the shifting Welsh coastline about the climate crisis and how we, in turn, are shaping the place around us.
