Midsummer Writing

Saturday 21 June 2014

Tutors: Helena Attlee and Emma Beynon   

This inspiring day will encourage you to develop your writing skills in the stimulating context of the Trust’s Rodd Farm.  The Rodd lies in a beautiful valley on the banks of the Hindwell Brook.  With pen and paper in hand, you will explore ancient woodlands, water meadows, hollow ways and the hidden details of this protected landscape.

We will introduce you to an eclectic mix of the finest writing past and present, carefully selected to enrich our experience of this unique environment.

In this small supportive group, there will be plenty of feedback from experienced writers; you can expect to leave the day with some finely crafted writing and the skills to develop new writing habits.

Fee: £60.00
