Chris Woodside's Writing from Nature Workshop
Unearthing Ideas in the Elements: Three Days on Squam Lake with Chris Woodside
Many writers already realize that their work is not merely an indoor, sedentary pursuit but that the best ideas come in a flash while we are doing other things that have nothing to do with writing.
SEJ member Chris Woodside will teach you how to tap this energy productively, and regularly — immersing in the natural world, with no agenda.
This workshop will join a small group of writers (25 or so) at Rockywold-Deephaven Camps, a rustic retreat with 19th-century-era buildings and a central dining hall on Squam Lake in Holderness, New Hampshire. It teaches a new method for good writing. It can transform how you work whether you write truth or fiction, short or long, poetry or prose. Away from distractions, on beautiful Squam Lake in the foothills of New Hampshire's White Mountains, you will learn to write without goals in mind. You will enter a new place of your mind as you learn to watch, listen, and smell the natural world.
Keynote speaker: Mark Kramer, narrative writer, author, teacher and director of Boston University's The Power of Narrative writing conference.
