In this workshop, we’ll consider how a natural environment can play a central role in storytelling.

Landscape is more than just an attractive backdrop for a story; it can have a direct impact on those characters who inhabit it. In this workshop, we’ll consider how a natural environment can play a central role in storytelling, embracing all the senses and influencing events. This could be Jane Austen’s gentle Hampshire countryside, the rugged moors of the Brontë sisters, or Daphne du Maurier’s romantic Cornish coast. If there’s a special landscape you’d like to write about, do join us for this interactive workshop. All writers welcome, including complete beginners! Just bring a notebook and pen.

She has an MA in Creative Writing from the University of Sussex and is an experienced workshop facilitator, editor and published author.

This workshop will take place over Zoom.
