My exciting residency at Oxfordshire County Council’s Historic Landscape Classification Project https://www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/cms/content/oxfordshire-historic-landscape-characterisation-project finished at the end of July with a flourish – a day of exhibitions and readings at the Oxfordshire Museum, Woodstock. I read from a pamphlet of 18 poems written in response to the mapping and landscape exercise. The pamphlet is called In Polygonia and is published by Oxfordfolio.
