Poetic Collaborations

Abstract

In this Chapter, I introduce a six-point manifesto for interdisciplinary collaborations between scientists and poets. In doing so I demonstrate why such a manifesto is necessary, and apply it to two well-established interdisciplinary collaborations to demonstrate how it works in practice, highlighting the merits and the areas for improvement in both.
