Unfortunately, we had to postpone our planned SciPo event until 2021 but we have organised an interim online poetry event!

Here we will explore poetry of the seas and water from scientific and non-scientific perspectives.

There is an associated competition on the subject 'The science of the Seas', judged by Lucy Newlyn. Find out more
