Just home from a week teaching nature writing with Mark Cocker at the Scottish Writers’ Centre, the very wonderful Moniack Mhor. What a place! Slavonian grebes thrown in for good measure…
Writing Day with Karen Lloyd at the wonderfully inspiring Sprint Mill, Burneside near Kendal. Sunday 16th July, 10.30 to 3pm. £20 including refreshments. Use the eclectic collection of objects inside the mill or the river environment as inspiration. (Bring packed lunch.)
Saturday 3rd June, Bolton Castle, nr. Leyburn. 10 am to 12 noon.
Come and join award winning writer Karen Lloyd for a two hour nature-writing workshop exploring the soundscape and sights of the moor above Bolton Castle. We will hear many of the bird species that spend summer in this wonderful territory – curlew, lapwing, cuckoo, snipe, plover and a host of woodland birds. There will also be the opportunity to reference a number of known and less well-known writers on place. Bring waterproof gear, sturdy shoes, notebook, pen and camera.
