Fiona Owen introduces
'One Hundred Shades of Green'. Literary Society director Fiona Owen introduces Victoria Field.
This writing workshop will explore our relationship to the natural world with a particular emphasis on the beauty and abundance of the month of May. We will read and discuss poems and short pieces of prose to explore how writers have approached questions such as climate change, the land, animals, birds and plant life. We will write in response and practice some close observation. We will also look at how the environment can act as a mirror for human experience and dilemmas. No experience necessary as the workshop will focus on generating new writing rather than critiquing. Please bring a notebook and something to write with.
