Join acclaimed Outdoor Writer Natasha Carthew on a guided exploration of our outdoor natural environment, followed by a creative writing session.

This workshop is for all the family and includes activities to stimulate observation and creativity whilst exploring the Exeter Quay area to produce a piece of creative writing inspired by our outdoor natural environment. The aim of this workshop is to excite and engage children in wild writing, to encourage them to become more aware of the natural environment and to provoke thought and discussion about the importance of the natural world.
