The reading for this walk comes from The Willow Herb Review ‘a digital platform to celebrate and bolster nature writing by emerging and established writers of colour’. The selected texts focus on themes of place and home. This week please consider the following question: Where do you consider home to be, is it more than one place and what is it that gives you a sense of home?
