Not Just Any Walden Pond

Location:

Community-Wide

Event Type(s): Literary, Lecture / Workshop

Description: We will focus in this retreat on how nature can inspire our creativity and craftsmanship. What can nature teach us about the “senses” in our writing? Writers will be encouraged to bring their journals, writing notebooks, cameras, to take in surroundings and craft poetry as spontaneous response to surroundings.Workshop and critique techniques will be used to encourage and support one another’s writings. Exercises and prompts will be used to add to the experience. Please note: This retreat will be held at a special location in the Charlottesville area. A light lunch will be provided.
