Careys Secret Garden: Wild Writing Workshop
Use nature to inspire writing!
In this three-hour workshop, we’ll use nature to inspire writing, and get closer to the natural world through words. Everyone is welcome, whether you’re a complete beginner or a more experienced writer, and whether you prefer to write about real life or fiction.
During the session, we’ll get immersed in nature, challenge ourselves with writing activities, and put pen to paper. We’ll explore techniques and find new inspiration. But above all, we’ll discover the connection between nature and writing against the beautiful backdrop of Careys Secret Garden. Where better to be inspired by the tranquility of nature?
This workshop is led by Dorset-based writer Katie Dancey-Downs, who writes everything from narrative non-fiction to short stories. Katie has written features for publications including Huffpost, i News, and Resurgence Magazine, as well as penning creative projects for the likes of Lush, Ordnance Survey, and the Co-op Foundation. She’s got a particular interest in the environment, nature, and human stories, and has travelled the world to tell tales of people and the planet. Katie has a Master’s degree in Journalism and was a finalist for The New Media Writing Prize, a runner up for The Fresher’s Writing Prize, and long-listed for the Freelance Writing Awards.
