ONSITE: Listen like a Starling/Breathe like a Whale: A Nature Writing Workshop
This generative workshop will be collaborative with a focus on listening and the vulnerability of quieting down and tuning in. Like a pod, we will move through each other's words and work, so that together we can find new places to write from and to. Plan to bring a few lines or a whole poem of your own or someone else’s to the first class that captures the natural world in some way. We’ll move together towards poems that put us in community with the natural world and with each other.
- Please bring something to write with and on.
This studio is not wheel chair accessible from the interior due to two steps, but is accessible through an exterior door.
