Coming from the Chase & Chalke Landscape Partnership we bring you an exhibition showing selected writing people have shared during the Words in the Landscape project. The exhibition will feature works produced by Chase & Chalke poet in residence Akulah Agbami, based on the lives of the abbesses of Shaftesbury Abbey over the centuries.  Also poems produced during sessions with Akulah Agbami and groups of writers from schools and local communities

There is also a chance to read poems and writing left in Poetry Boxes placed around the landscape of Cranborne Chase and works created and submitted as part of the Creative Writing Competition

The Words in the Landscape project aims to bring together readers, writers, poets and tellers of tales to celebrate the written and spoken word, and to connect people to the landscape.  The Chase & Chalke Landscape Partnership is a group of organisations working to protect and enhance the special landscape of Cranborne Chase and the Chalke Valley.
