Earth Words: A Nature Writing Workshop

  • Maze Branch Library 845 Gunderson Avenue Oak Park, IL, 60304 United States (map)

Learn to write about the nature where you live: in nearby parks and nature preserves; along rivers, lakes, and ponds; and in your own backyard. Whether in a private journal or for publication, you will learn techniques for describing the flora and fauna you encounter, and also recording and reflecting on the meaning they have for you.

All are welcome to attend, no matter your experience in journal writing or writing for others.

Presenter Carol LaChapelle is a writer, teacher, and the author of Finding Your Voice, Telling Your Stories (Marion Street Press, 2008).  Her essays have appeared on the Center for Humans & Nature’s City Creatures blog, Chicago Wilderness Magazine, and Next Avenue.

Brought to you by West Cook Wild Ones.
