Poetry workshop in nature…walk, wander and stop to write along the way. Give voice to the world around you.

About this Event

We’ll walk in silence and write our observations and experiences, read to each other, keep watch, interview the world, give voice to what is happening. Patti will share poetic forms and present writing practices for deep attention.

This class will meet at the Limantour Beach Parking Lot, then we’ll walk and write our way upstream along the Muddy Hollow trail.

Patti Trimble, award-winning poet and essayist, teaches and performs in the US and Europe. Since the 1990s she’s taught at universities, poetry festivals, and in the Point Reyes wilds. Her workshops in nature are pop-up creative communities. With many voices and many ears to listen, real writing happens. pattitrimble.com
