Creative Writing Workshop
September 23, 2023 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm$45
Owl’s Hill Nature Sanctuary – Creative Writing Workshop – Summer Series
This morning workshop offers an opportunity for those who love nature, writing, and creativity to come together and pursue all three in a small group setting (10-person maximum). Facilitated in the Amherst Writers & Artists method, this workshop is designed to nurture the inherent creative abilities of every participant. Are you curious about writing in nature or about nature? Do you regularly journal or keep a blog? Do you write professionally? Has it been years since picking up a pen? Do you want to create a writing practice for yourself?
With nature as our inspiration and subject, we’ll write to at least three prompts with an opportunity to share with the group. This is not a critique workshop. When words are brand new on the page we do not edit or perfect. We respond with what resonated in a strong way and what we remember. We’ll discuss the AWA philosophy and practices at the beginning of each workshop, and encourage participants to learn more here: Philosophy and Practices ⋆ Amherst Writers & Artists
What to bring:
- Notebook and pen, journal and colored pencils, laptop — your choice!
- Optional: A sack lunch to enjoy following the workshop, as well as comfortable shoes, sunscreen, and insect repellent to explore the trails at Owl’s Hill.
Please plan to arrive by 9:15 am to park, get settled in our space, and prepare to begin the workshop on time.
$45 per workshop or $120 for the 3-class series (each workshop can be taken independently).
