Linda’s Botanical project began with a visit to Padua Botanic Garden in Autumn 2012 and has taken her to Oxford, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Kew, Benmore, Dawyck, Sheffield, Linn and Durham Botanic Gardens.
She is currently completing work on a new collection, Reading the Flowers, as well as a non-fiction book of her journey called Botanical Road.
Linda is continuing to blog at poeticabotanica.wordpress.com, although less regularly now. She has returned to teaching and is currently Creative Writing Fellow at the University of Leeds. Linda also offers one-to-one tutorials both privately and through the Poetry School.
Sculpture at Cheeseburn
Throughout 2014 Linda visited Cheeseburn Grange, a country house and working farm in Northumberland – a new space for showcasing contemporary sculpture, with pieces by David Mach, Colin Rose and others. Charting the equinoxes, solstices and cross-quarter days, her notes have been published online to make a calendar of the Cheeseburn year.
PlaySpace in Glasgow has published an essay of Linda’s on poetry and spiritual practice. It began as a talk given on retreat at Dhanakosa and for the printed page has grown and transformed to include illustrative poems and pictures.
