Nature Writing Woodland Workshop
Sat, 18 September 2021 @ 09:00 - 12:00
A walk in the woods is a great way to inspire your nature writing. This circular walk involves a gentle stroll and writing workshop in beautiful Roseisle Forest, Burghead.
The natural world is an endless source of inspiration for wildlife writer and photographer Rebecca Gibson. Join her as she walks around Roseisle Forest, starting and finishing in beautiful Burghead.
This three-hour event will involve a leisurely stroll through the woods, keeping an eye out for any passing wildlife. Participants will be encouraged to notice not just the sights but also the sounds, textures and smells of their surroundings. Nature writing is most immersive when it involves all the senses.
During the walk there will be a nature writing workshop, using creaking pines, chirruping goldcrests and prickly gorse as sensory prompts. If anyone has any questions for Rebecca about writing or wildlife, she’d be happy to answer them. Participants can read out what they’ve written if they’d like to, but there’s absolutely no pressure to share. Afterwards, the group will make their way back through the forest, hopefully feeling refreshed and inspired.
