Twilight Creature Double Feature: Badger as Mentor

What is it that lures a badger from their den? Why is twilight the time a badger chooses to emerge? There are scientific reasons, of course, but there’s a poetry to the badger’s life, too. This session will take inspiration from this, refiguring the badger as a model for life as a writer, playfully considering lessons that this twilight creature might offer us in thinking, writing and engaging with both industry and community. 

This event is part of our Twilight Creature Double Feature, an evening of themed sessions, embracing the animals of early evening. Sign up for one or both sessions to learn the lessons of badgers and bats. Register for Writing with Bats here.


  • When: Thursday 18 July, 6–7pm
