Write in Nature

Write in Nature


Eycott Hill has fabulous views, unique geology, and interesting wildlife to spark the imagination. This creative writing workshop with Cumbria Wildlife Trust led by Geraldine Green will use time outdoors and gentle writing prompts and exercises to help you craft work inspired by the nature reserve. Geraldine is an experienced creative writing tutor, published poet, mentor and poetry editor. Her enthusiasm for the outdoors and nature writing is reflected in the many workshops she tutors and in her work. From 2015-2016 Geraldine was Writer-in-Residence at Brantwood, former home of John Ruskin. Her third collection, Passing Through written partly in response to her Brantwood residency, will be published in 2018 by Indigo Dreams Publishing. She blogs at: Part of the day will be spent outdoors so please bring waterproof clothing and sturdy walking boots. Tea and coffee will be provided at the indoor venue but please bring lunch and drinks to take with you to the nature reserve. Don’t forget a notebook, pen and camera.
