PROSE WORKSHOP: Felt Landscapes

September 11 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Incorporate natural surroundings in your fiction or nonfiction

FELT LANDSCAPES: A Prose Workshop with Brooke McEwen

 

How does a writer shape a sense of place? How does place function in prose to transport us and bring us home? In this hands-on, generative workshop we’ll explore texts and writing techniques that deepen the connection between our inner lives and exterior landscapes. We’ll also look at how to use attention to sensory details of our natural surroundings as a writing tool. Writers of all experience levels are welcome and encouraged to attend.

THIS PROGRAM IS PRESENTED IN PERSON. PLEASE READ OUR COVID-19 POLICY AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE. 

This workshop will be presented in person at the writing center, making use of both outdoor and indoor spaces, weather permitting. Please dress appropriately for a possible hike of the property. Tuition for the 90-minute workshop is $45. Write On members receive a 10% discount. To become a member and save, please click here. This program is appropriate for teens as well as adults.
