Anita Sethi - Nature Writing Workshop with author-in-residence

Nairn Community and Arts Centre,
2 Sep – 2 Sep

Join tutor, Anita Sethi, award winning author of I Belong Here: a Journey Along the Backbone of Britain, to explore how to observe and describe the natural world through creative writing. What is the relationship between inner and outer landscapes and how can you harness this in your writing? The relationship between people and place, landscape, wildlife, climate change, natural history and more can all be seen through the lens of nature writing and in this workshop we will explore what this means on the page. Expect a session filled with practical tools and tips, in which you have time and space to work on writing exercises and share and develop your voice. We’ll also draw inspiration from the wonderful landscape of Nairn including a walk along the coast, weather permitting. 

This is a welcoming workshop: in the UK, nature writing is still an overwhelmingly monocultural literary field. Yet nature matters to all of us, crucial to our physical and mental health and sense of belonging. Suitable for writers of all levels.
