Event Description: 

Come join local nature writer Katherine Hauswirth for a half-day writing retreat, with a focus on nature as theme and inspiration. The afternoon will start with sharing some nature writing, including a brief reading from her book, The Book of Noticing. Bring some of your favorite nature writing to share, too! The group will briefly discuss ideas for writing approaches, themes, and formats, and then part ways to spend time in nature and engage in the writing process. Tips and writing prompts will be provided, and the upstairs library at CFPA will remain available for quiet contemplation and writing space. The session will wrap up with the group rejoining to discuss their experiences and ideas for next steps, with optional sharing of drafts.

Fee = $20 for CFPA members; $25 for members. Please bring cash or a check.
