It will be held on Thursday, August 4, 2022, 9:30 – 11:30 am.
The Workshop will introduce children and young writers to poetic forms and nature writing. Encouraging the students to think about the world around them and how non-human living things have stories to tell, inviting the participants to ponder their place and perspective in relation to the natural world.
