Introduction to Nature Writing: day course @ The Studio by the Fell | Kendal | England | United Kingdom

 

Nature Writing

A one day course giving insights and explorations of nature writing. Karen has been studying on the M.Litt at Stirling University over the past year with the renowned writer Kathleen Jamie. She is currently working on a book about Morecambe Bay and has been commissioned to write for Scottish Island Explorer magazine. We will be looking at the work of other writers as context and going out into the environment to begin making personal responses. These will be shared and discussed within the group, and notes will be gien for taking your work forward. It is not expected to have a finished piece on the day but to have developed insights to take your writing forward. A follow up day will be held in the autumn.
