National Insect Week returns in 2018
Monday, June 20, 2016 - 17:30 to 19:15
‘How passionately’, wrote Vladimir Nabokov, ‘art and science meet in an insect’.
To mark the beginning of National Insect Week, Bristol Zoo is hosting a free writing workshop led by two esteemed local poets. The event will include a short talk on insects in literature by Rachel Murray (Bristol University), a tour of the Bug World by invertebrate expert Mark Bushell (Bristol Zoo), followed by an opportunity to craft your own creative response to creepy-crawlies.
Whether you’re a published writer or an amateur scribbler, join us at the Bug World, and have the chance to see your work form part of a permanent exhibition at the zoo.
To attend this event please register in advance.
