Writing from the Wilds will give young writers an opportunity to renew their creative energy during mid-summer as they explore craft, narrative voice, story structure and more while roaming freely through the mind’s wild terrain. Working with generative prompts and launching places, the workshop will inspire and support writers of all styles, levels and experience. It’s the perfect opportunity for younger writers who wish for open space in which to write. Students will receive science instruction from Opal Creek’s educators and come to understand and appreciate their environment. Travelling along footpaths alongside pristine creeks in the ancient forest is sure to inspire.
