Write in the Woods with Judith Lindbergh!

Sunday, October 1, 10 am – 1 pm

RAINDATE: October 8

On this gentle excursion into the woods, we will open our senses and let nature be our inspiration and guide.  We will take a leisurely three-hour walk through the South Mountain Reservation, pausing at opportune spots to breathe in, observe, absorb, and express on the page.  Writing on old-fashioned paper with pen or pencil, we will share our work along the way and take note of how our words and thoughts transform under the subtle and powerful influence of the natural world.

Led by TWC Founder/Director Judith Lindbergh who is an avid hiker and nature photographer.
