When is this event?
The way we each experience places can be vastly different – our unique emotions, knowledge, memories and company can all alter how we connect to the land. What and who we’re in company with shapes how we connect to a landscape.
With this as a starting point, writer, Elizabeth Reeder, will be hosting a series of writing workshops exploring the idea of companionship.
The workshops will explore what it might mean to have a companion species, or to be accompanied by a question, or to accompany someone with different knowledge of a place than you have.
And we’ll do some writing. The writing is for yourself and you’ll be under no obligation to share. (Although, we are considering collecting stories for those people who are interested in sharing them.)
No previous writing experience is necessary, and all ages* and abilities very welcome.
*under-18s must be accompanied by an adult.
These workshops are free, but places are limited. Please sign up to reserve a space.
Dates and times:
Saturday 5th February, 10am -12 noon, online via Zoom
Wednesday 16th February, 6-8 pm, online via Zoom
We plan to run additional in-person workshops come the spring!
For any questions please contact Elizabeth directly on [email protected]
