Whether it is a vast expanse of mountains, the waves crashing against the shore, or even the view of the sunset against the skyline outside your window, nature often finds a way to inspire us. When we write about nature, we find ourselves looking deeper at our environment: the natural world, our rural and urban neighborhoods, even our own rooms! We may focus on a call to arms, ecology, and even deeper introspection and reflections of ourselves and others. The naturalist and author John Muir said, "Between every two pines is a doorway to a new world." Let's explore them together.
At Writopia, outdoor writing is designed to get writers observing their surroundings, exploring your locale, and celebrating sensory details, and we want you to experience it with us! Join us in one of our regions and write in nature, become acquainted with Writopia, and meet other young writers and writerly families in your community.
We will provide a writing prompt, notebooks and pens, a sharing circle, and plenty of time for sharing, feedback, and questions about Writopia!
Our instructors run private sessions at all of our labs and online via video chatting.
