Tree-Talking: Nature Writing and Trees

Tree-Talking: Nature Writing and Trees

This is a 5-day workshop.  Classes run 9-4pm with lunch included.

What does it mean to slow down and pay attention to the natural world? What lives there with us? In this creative writing workshop, we will closely observe nature with a particular focus on trees.

You will come away from this workshop with new nature-writing techniques to use in your writing practice and a sheaf of new writing. Your work will receive feedback from Ariel and be workshopped with the group.

You will be also invited to contribute to Ariel Gordon’s public poetry project TreeTalk, where she will write poems to one tree on the MISSA campus and invites passersby to add their poems/confessions/ideas.
