theBigBuzz blog is written by me, poet, performer and writer of eco-musicals, Anneliese Emmans Dean, to record the multifarious goings-on in my garden and in theBigBuzz.
I founded theBigBuzz in 2007 to bring poetry to life, to promote sustainability through creativity, and to foster learning through laughter, rhythm and rhyme. Based in York, England, I travel the country putting on ‘edu-taining’ poetry shows, workshops and eco-musicals in schools, theatres, festivals and beyond. My books include the award-winning Buzzing! Discover the poetry in garden minibeasts, and the forthcoming Flying High! Discover the poetry in British birds.
You can get a flavour of what I do by checking out these videos.
And you can find out a lot more at my website, theBigBuzz.biz.

My garden is on the outskirts of York. It’s only about 8 metres long by 8 metres wide, but it’s buzzing with wildlife – as you’ll see from the posts in this blog, and from my Buzzing! book, which contains oodles of poems, photos and factabulous facts inspired by the minibeasts here. Buzzing! has a Foreword by the Bumblebee Conservation Trust and is a National Insect Week recommended children’s book and teachers’ resource. It was nominated for the 2013 Carnegie Medal, shortlisted for the Royal Society Young People’s Book Prize and won the 2015 NS Teachers’ Book Award for poetry.
If you’d like to experience the multi-media show that is Buzzing! – my award-winning, fun celebration of garden minibeasts in poems, pictures and music – or any other of my poetry shows or workshops, then please contact me (email@example.com) to talk about arranging a date and venue.
More information about all my poetry shows, eco-musicals and workshops is available at my website, www.theBigBuzz.biz
