Join me for two Saturdays of writing about nature and place. From 10-12 AM on the first two Saturdays in October, writers of any level will convene in nature and consider the way an intimacy with place and nature influences their perceptions of the world around them. The group will take a short walk, engage in writing, and share with each other. 

Meet ups will take place at the Orwell Free Library & Mount Independence (in Orwell, Vermont), weather permitting. Please contact me for more information:
