Walking and Writing Workshop

The Sill: National Landscape Discovery Centre, Once Brewed, Hexham, NE47 7AN

30 Jul 2022

Delivered by Dr Sheree Mack with Northumberland National Park

Working in collaboration with Northumberland National Park Authority, Sheree Mack brings another walking writing workshop along Steel Ring, Peel Crag, Hadrian’s Wall.

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?
