The Maine coast has been an inspiration for writers and for centuries. The craggy coastline, mist enshrouded lighthouses, seals, lobster boats and buoys will be your backdrop for this 3 night 4 day writing expedition.
This workshop will help you explore yourself and your environment via kayaking, community-building, and writing. We will begin with exercises that engage all of the senses, so we fully experience the environment and craft writing that conveys the elements inside of us and surrounding us. You will pick from writing prompts that encourage engagement with the environment as well as introspection, you may choose to write poetry, prose, or both. To build community, we will share informal writing, develop the ability to listen to each other, and practice asking good questions. Workshops and conferences will give you ideas about how to expand and revise your work and new perspectives. We will conclude with a celebration of our work and our connections to nature.
