Sessions that urge people
Get your nature fix! These extended nature walks feature writing prompts that are tailored to your location. We begin with a few exercises to get our creative juices flowing. Then we head outside, where we use all of our senses to make new discoveries. We document what we see in journals and sketchbooks. These offerings are best done with 12-15 people, ranging from teens through adults. A session can last from 90 minutes to 3 hours; or it can expand to fill a whole day or even a weekend retreat. We go out in every season.
Regardless of the session length, attendees will reconnect with nature and will come away with at least one piece of finished or in-progress writing.

I have led
these kinds of walks at Thoreau Farm (Henry David Thoreauís birthplace) in
Concord, MA; as well as through public library programs in Eagle, WI;
Annville, PA; Hanover, PA; and West Chester, PA. In each instance, most
participants wrote original pieces that would not have come to fruition
otherwise. Many were inspired and excited by the experience to do something
they had rarely or had never done before. And most of these folks did not
write or create art on a regular basis or as a normal routine.
