Walking Writer

The Walking Writer workshop is all about nature and writing. Many writers including Virginia Woolf, Ernest Hemingway, and Frank O'Hara used walking as a way of stimulating their writing. Walking is not just good for the physical body; it is good for the mind too. For William Blake and William Wordsworth, writing was a way to leave the outside world behind.

We will be retreating from the busy everyday into our own particular creative worlds with an emphasis on sight, sound, smell, touch and hearing and there will be some readings. We will be writing and walking in the wooded areas of East Barnet. You will have a chance to discuss your latest writing project, make new writing friends or meet old ones. We will be joining Greenacre Walks for the Pymmes Brook Trail and will stop for lunch at the cafe in Oak Hill Park. After lunch there will be a short performance at the Band Stand where we will read our poetry and prose before continuing the walk.
