Writing places

Writing places

Full-day workshops combining inspiring instruction with discovery of the environment.

I teach a writing process that begins with observation of the physical world around us, using drafting, sketching and hands-on work with found objects. Workshops are friendly and structured, with plenty of personal attention built-in and with time for sharing at the end.

If your group would like to structure the day around a particular place or theme, just let me know. I'll be pleased to design a workshop for you that fits with your ideas.
