I Belong Here – Nature Writing Workshop – with Anita Sethi

Artwork Slide

Mon, 18 October 11:00am - 1:00pm

A two-hour session to introduce you to nature writing, with tutor Anita Sethi. You’ll explore how to observe and describe the natural world. The relationship between people and place, landscape, wildlife, climate change, natural history and more can all be explored within nature writing.

Weather permitting, this workshop will also be partly a walkshop, incorporating a walk through the local area, learning to sharpen the observational powers of nature along the way.

This is a welcoming workshop, for northern writers of colour and those from low-income backgrounds. In the UK, nature writing is still an overwhelmingly monocultural literary field. Yet the past year has shown more than ever why nature matters to all of us, crucial to our mental health and sense of belonging.
