Jean Atkin has now taken up residence at Logan Botanic Garden! Check out www.walkingwithpoets.com to see her blogs and photos.
She’s also got a wonderful range of events planned- all free with Garden Admission.
An award-winning poet and children’s writer, Jean lived in Dumfries & Galloway for 12 years and is very much looking forward to returning for her residency: “I expect it will be hugely rewarding working with words in the setting of Logan, which I have always loved visiting. I hope that my series of playful events will help people of all ages to be creative, and re-discover the Garden through poetry.” Jean’s collection, Not Lost Since Last Time, was published by Overstep Books in February this year.
