Introduction to Nature Writing Retreat

May 8 2019 · 10:00am  – 3:00pm


Can a bromeliad be a narrator? Why not?  This class is designed for new and experienced writers to learn the basic techniques of nature writers and to create a writing project. You will be guided with techniques to observe and “see” nature in a new way, experiment with finding the “voice” of nature and discover the power of your own words.  Each session will include spending time in the Gardens for inspiration. Learn the steps writers practice to create ideas, produce story outlines, and immerse into character development culminating in a finished writing project. Whether your genre is memoir, journaling, poetry, fiction or non-fiction, the techniques presented will enrich and enliven your work. Join journalist/meditation instructor Gail Condrick for this special event. No prior writing experience is necessary. Bring a journal and a pen.
