Building on the success and enjoyment of the two outdoor workshops I ran for Cumbria Wildlife Trust in May and July 2016, I'm also running another one in 2018!

Date: Friday, April 6th 2018, Eycott Hill, Cumbria Wildlife Trust Nature Reserve 10am-4pm


Gather at Mungrisdale Village Hall at 10am for welcome and introduction to the day. Then it's off on a very short car-share drive to Berrier and a day on Eycott Hill!

Come and join me on what promises to be another inspiring day at Eycott Hill, Cumbria Wildlife Trust's Nature Reserve, Berrier, North Cumbria.

Early booking recommended!

Event details

Friday, April 6th 2018 - 10:00am - 4:00pm
Eycott Hill Nature Reserve is an inspirational place with fabulous views, unique geology, and interesting wildlife to spark the imagination. This creative writing workshop led by local writer Geraldine Green will use time outdoors and gentle writing prompts and exercises to help you craft poetry and prose inspired by the nature reserve.
Geraldine is an experienced creative writing tutor, published poet, mentor and poetry editor. Her enthusiasm for the outdoors and nature writing is reflected in the many workshops she tutors and in her work. She was the first Writer-in-Residence at Brantwood, former home of John Ruskin and also at Swarthmoor Hall, Ulverston, Cumbria, Birthplace of Quakerism.
