Severson Dells Nature CenterWriting into the Wild Workshop

Saturday, March 21, 9:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.

Rockford, IL

Writing well requires listening with one’s whole body. This workshop will engage participants in a sensory conversation with the wild worlds that flow around and through us. Gavin Van Horn will lead the group through a series of invitations and writing prompts focused on slowing down, quieting overactive analytic minds, and deepening bodily attention to the wild landscape and other-than-human beings. The purpose of this workshop is to explore the relationship between inner and outer wilds, hone basic tools for attending to our senses, and make use of practical writing exercises that can awaken us to how our own stories are connected to place. Fee: $35 members, $45 non-members. Space is limited; register here.
