Downtown Bend: Writers Writing - Nature Writing: Come to Your Senses

Saturday, January 28, 2023
1:00 PM to 3:00 PM
Incorporate nature into your work using all your senses.

This is an in-person program. Registration is required. Wearing a face covering is optional at all library events.

Ready to get curious about nature and put words on a page? To convey the wonder takes more than recording what you see. Practice writing that employs all five senses. Try strategies for fresh descriptions, metaphors, and sentence rhythm. Play a game to mix things up and inspire creativity. The class is open to all levels.

Bring a notebook and a pen.
