My daughter Nicola-Jane le Breton is coordinating this wonderful nature writing retreat. Wish I could be there! If you are a nature writer, or would like to be, this is the place to go. I can’t put all the images and extra information about the programme in here; go to the address below to find out more, and don’t delay, as this one will be very popular!
Writing in the Wild:
A Nature Writers’ Retreat in Denmark, WA, Oct 14-16
Explore the wonders of the Great South West Edge and practice the craft of nature writing.
Stimulate your senses. Ignite your creative flame. Renew your spirit.
Find your poetic voice. Explore your connection to nature.
Open your heart through writing.
Where forest, river and inlet meet the sea.
In this inaugural nature writing event at Denmark’s Centre for Sustainable Living,
writers will engage with ecologists in a creative and educational exploration of local landscapes.
Other highlights open to the broader community to attend are: an evening with the artists at Tea House Books in Denmark on Friday night, and an engaging Panel discussion hosted by Bookmark at the Albany Museum.
The topic for the Panel is titled “The crying game – writing about nature, our great disconnect” and will explore the struggle that many writers from a non-indigenous Australian heritage have writing about the Australian landscape. Two local writers will join the three visiting artists for this discussion with Andrew Collins, from ABC radio, moderating the event.
