This writing experience mixes direct instruction with playful experimentation. It’s for beginners, journal jotters, author wannabes, and anyone curious about how the writing process unfolds. We’ll start by exploring the Iowa Arboretum and finding words to convey a sense of place. Along the way Nan Bonfils will give you prompts for jumpstarting your writing and strategies for propelling it. You will not be obliged to share your writing although you will be welcome to do so. You will leave with three pieces for your portfolio and inspiration for more.
The workshop is designed for adults. Students of high school age can also enroll. Please dress to spend time outdoors and bring a chair for sitting outside.
Nan is our Education Coordinator. She co-directed and taught at the East Asia Writing Project.
