Into the Wild: Nature-Based Creative Writing & Reading Circle At Clapping Hands Farm!
May 5 @ 12:30 pm - 4:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 12:30 pm on Thursday, repeating until May 5, 2022
Leaders Joelle Brummit-Yale and Khallori Cosmey look forward to a third session of our Creative Writing & Reading Circle program. Spring is the perfect time to explore the beautiful outdoors. And what better way to do so than through writing and reading! In the Creative Writing portion of this class, we’ll use the rich outdoor space at Clapping Hands as a springboard for our writing. We’ll go on hikes and sit in the woods or by the pond observing the natural world. These experiences will be the source material for our creative writing. Campers will be encouraged to use a variety of different forms of writing to share their experiences. Opportunities for collaboration and sharing work will be available. Our Reading Circle group will read professional works–short stories, poems, and novels–that focus on nature. All books will be available as print, e-books and audiobooks, and each will offer a unique perspective on the natural world and our relationship with the environment.
You can sign up for Creative Writing or Reading Circle BUT we would love it if people signed up for BOTH–as there is plenty of interplay between writing and reading great writing!
Ages 13-18 (younger campers accepted on a case-by-case basis)
We at the Chatham Arts Council are delighted to provide the only online calendar exclusively dedicated to Chatham County arts events–performing, literary, and visual arts. Get out there and get inspired!
