Nature Writers Workshop

Fun, action-packed, hands-on learning experiences. No worksheets or devices. 

Our natural environment provides us with such a vast amount of inspiration when you know where to look.

 

Noticing, observing and journaling ideas are skills that we can  link directly to creative writing, developing an understanding of the power of language to paint images with words. 

 

Through nature walks, observation and science exploration we will record a journal of inspiration for writing. 

 

Writing goals may include; 

- how to 'show' not 'tell'

- developing a better understanding of language features including alliteration, similies, onomatopoeia.

- how to write poetry, a memoir and a short story.

- how to gain inspiration from our surroundings

- how to organise ideas into a powerful piece of writing. 

- how to construct a powerful sentence.
