Thursday 5 March
Join outdoor writer Natasha Carthew for her Nature Writing in Non-Fiction Workshop, where she hopes to engage with local writers by encouraging you to connect with your environment and inspire you to engage in nature, finding different ways of thinking about wildlife and the landscape that we live in through curiosity, creativity and multi-sensory practice.
Nature Writing goes deep beneath the core of what it is to live in the UK today and Natasha’s workshop will explore issues including personal observations, local history, memory, philosophical reflections, geography and environmental issues, whilst connecting with the wild places that surround us no matter where we live.

We will meet outside Custom House. Please wear warm clothes and bring a notepad and pens/pencils. Booking is advisable.
