Writing in the Gardens, 2019

I’m thrilled to be partnering with the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens to present a workshop called Writing in the Gardens this coming July. In five days, you’ll have the opportunity to transform potent memories into a short memoir. The sights, textures and scents of the surrounding environment will 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. On Friday afternoon, workshop writers will celebrate their progress with a public reading at the Gardens.

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

Monday, July 8, to Friday, July 12, from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. with a Friday afternoon reading. (limited to eight participants)

To register for the workshop: This workshop was successfully completed on July 12. Stay tuned for next summer’s dates.
