Feeding the Insatiable

creative explorations of real and imaginary futures

a summit

November 9 -11 2016

Dartington Hall, Devon, England

Energy is an old, wily creature to walk with. It rises from the heat of the Earth’s core, falls in a sunbeam, comes with the tide to form cliffs. It takes people and places, time and technology, to transform and transport energy (it can never be destroyed). How to walk with this ethereal power, and tell its stories? How to imagine and write its futures?

So I’ve been reading this book The Fountain In The Forest. Here’a the author @tony_white_ reading. Readers will be gripped, writers will keep looking up from the page - as I have - and wonder just how he’s done the things he’s done in it. Find it, read it.
