Walking and Writing Workshop

Event date:
30th July 2022
The Sill: National Landscape Discovery Centre

Taking inspiration from The Lost Spells: Listening to a Landscape of Voices exhibition, and book by Jackie Morris and Robert Macfarlane, this writing workshop will explore the power, glory and joy of nature.

Starting with the exhibition, we will use Jackie’s images as a field guide as we journey outside (in all weathers) to walk the landscape around The Sill and Hadrian’s Wall. With our sense of wonder stimulated and our creative pots full, we’ll return to The Sill to put pen to paper.

All genres of writing, journaling, imagining and creating are welcome in this workshop which is led by Hadrian’s Wall Creatrix and The Sill’s first writer in Residence, Dr Sheree Mack. The aim is to leave with a renewed sense of awe at nature and ourselves, as are we not all connected with nature as one?

All materials will be provided but if you have a special notebook and pen you like to create with, you are more than welcome to bring it along. Please bring clothes suitable for changeable weather and stout footwear for the walk. This workshop is suitable for adult writers, either beginners or experienced. All abilities welcome. The walk, although short and at a gentle pace, will take us over varied and uneven terrain.

In addition to Sheree’s expert guidance your ticket includes:

  • Guided access to The Lost Spells Exhibition
  • Free parking at The Sill
  • A 15% voucher off The Sill Shop or Café purchases
