Words from Wissington to Wormingford with James Canton

James will be discussing the links between literature and landscape based around a visit to Wissington Church and a walk over the Stour up towards Wormingford. Dr James Canton has written widely in creative non-fiction forms and taught on the MA in Wild Writing at the University of Essex since its inception in 2009. His book Out of Essex: Re-Imagining a Literary Landscape (2013) is inspired by rural wanderings in the county. His latest work Ancient Wonderings: Journeys into Prehistoric Britain is published by Collins in June 2017. The Oak Papers that James will talk about on the walk remains a work in progress.

?Accessibility information: This walk will be on public footpaths through mixed terrain and there may be some stiles or other obstacles. It will be suitable for accompanied children.
