~ Lisa Brockwell, New Shoots commissioned poet 

Created by Red Room Poetry, New Shoots cultivates and celebrates poems inspired by plants. As part of our Poetic Moments project, in partnership with Byron Writers Festival and Elements Resort, we have commissioned local poet Lisa Brockwell to create a new series of poems that respond to the ecosystems, plant life and Byron Shire environment.

Our Poetic Moments partnership with Byron Writers Festival and Elements of Byron Resort led us to local Lisa Brockwell for a poetic response to the ecosystems, plant life and Byron Shire environment. Lisa's poems featured on seeded paper scattered throughout Elements Resort.
