    Event description

    Write in your place – a nature writing workshop with Sarah Drummond and Yann Toussaint

    How can the landscape become a “character” in our writing? How can our writing bear witness to the changing environment around us? And how can nature journaling help us learn to see nature – and our place in it -  more clearly?

    In this workshop, designed for aspiring and experienced writers alike, novelist Sarah Drummond and poet Yann Toussaint will guide you through a series of mini-lectures, creative tasks and site visits as we explore nature writing as an emerging literary form over two days.

    These workshops are designed for adults and will run over two days, Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd of June. Preference will be given to City of Bayswater Residents but all interested writers are encouraged to register. See details below:

    Date and Time:
    Session 1: Saturday 22nd June, 1:00 pm -4:30 pm
    Session 2: Sunday 23rd June, 9:30pm - 2:00 pm

    Please book early to be sent pre course reading ahead of time.

    Write in your place is hosted by Enviro House thanks to a Better Bayswater Grant from the City of Bayswater.
