This one-day workshop with writing teacher and coach Kathrin Seitz is a full-on day of generating new writing through exercises, prompts and outdoor observations. Begin with paying attention to what grabs you and leave with a nearly finished piece of prose or poetry.
The morning begins with writing prompts that sharpen our awareness. Next, a walk to the water, observing our surroundings through note-taking, photography, and/or drawing, being curious about what we notice/find.
We return to the house for a savory lunch, then the afternoon focuses on composing a solid piece from the observations that we gathered throughout the morning. The day ends celebrating with a final reading.
