Greensand Country have announced a free creative writing workshop for young people living in the local area.
Writer Daisy Henwood will be leading the online session to explore how creative writing can help connect us to the natural world, and asking young people to tell their stories about where they live and the places they love to visit.
From describing plants and bugs to thinking about where humans fit in the nonhuman world, the aim is to try out some innovative ways to describe Greensand Country. Those taking part will be inspired and empowered to write about their local area through a series of writing exercises, discussions, and opportunities to share their work.
Daisy Henwood is a writer and arts producer based in Norwich. She is the co-director of TOAST poetry, and runs workshops for the National Centre for Writing, Norwich Castle, and Young Norfolk Arts. In 2020, she received her PhD in Environmental Literature from UEA, and was commissioned by BBC Norfolk and Norwich City Council to write about Norwich’s green spaces. All of her work is interested in the ways writing helps foster our connection to nature.
Greensand Country Landscape Partnership are delighted to have commissioned Daisy Henwood to deliver this course.
There will be two sessions to attend, which will run on Saturday 6 and Saturday 13 March. They are aimed at two age ranges, 8-12 year olds and 13-17 year olds.
