‘Talking about the local landscape and wildlife as part of the Society of Authors contribution to the Hitchin Festival was a wonderful experience.
The audience was enthusiastic and responsive, and the session ended with interesting conversations and questions about community-led conservation and how to help wildlife in our gardens.’
Nature Writing Workshop
Nic’s next event will take place after the summer break. In the meantime, she’ll be visiting two fabulous UK bird observatories and having a family holiday in the New Forest.
If you’d like to attend her Nature Writing Workshop in September, organised by the Herts & Middlesex Wildlife Trust, more details and links to booking are available below.
Wednesday 13 September 2023, 10.30am at Triangle Community Garden, Hitchin
Do you enjoy watching the birds in your garden or local park? Are you interested in the wild flowers and trees you pass on your way into town or on country walks?
Perhaps you’d like to share your ideas and enthusiasm with others, broaden your knowledge of wildlife and place, and explore your own creative voice.
Whether you’re new to writing or would like to develop your skills, this workshop will give you the opportunity to engage with the natural world through creative writing.
We will look at ways to connect with wildlife and the local landscape, and consider what form our writing might take.
We’ll visit the community garden for ideas on how and where to find inspiration, and explore how to use all of our senses to engage the reader.
The session will include written exercises, discussion of extracts and the opportunity to share our writing (which will always be optional).
Participants will come away with prompts, several short pieces and a range of ideas about how drafts might be developed into longer written work.
