About the Course
Nature writing is not only one of the most popular literary genres, it is also a great way to connect with the natural world. J Join naturalist, author and academic Stephen Moss for a day inspired by nature, and learn how to capture your experiences, feelings and thoughts in writing.
This workshop is for anyone who has ever wanted to write about the world around them or simply wants to experience nature in a new way. You'll focus on learning to see, hear, smell and above all feel a connection with the wild: how to notice what is all around you, take notes to help you capture that special moment, find ways of describing the sights and sounds of nature, and then set your thoughts down on paper to be read by others.
We'll start before breakfast, listening to birdsong in the grounds of Hawkwood College; later we'll look for wildflowers and butterflies - depending, of course, on the English weather! After writing short pieces inspired by our morning's wildlife-watching, we'll then workshop these, analysing the different ways in which each person has chosen to write about similar experiences.
