Writing in the Gardens, 2020

I’m thrilled to be partnering once again with the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens to present a workshop called Writing in the Gardens this coming June. In four days, you’ll have the opportunity to transform potent memories into a short memoir. The sights, textures and scents of the surrounding environment helps create pathways to explore buried recollections and release dormant literary creativity. We’ll each spend part of each morning walking in and observing nature, then gather in the Gardens’ library to write and share our work.

The only prerequisite for this workshop is an open mind and a willingness to honor each other’s writing efforts.

Monday, June 15, to Thursday, June 18, from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. (limited to eight participants)

To register for the workshop: go to the sign up page at Maine Coast Botanical Gardens.
