Writing exercises will be interspersed with time in the gardens for you to experience new inspiration as you learn to write like an artist. A day of art immersion, nature appreciation and writing to inspire all of your works.

Each session will include spending time in the Gardens for inspiration and returning to the historic Carriage House to complete writing assignments. Learn the steps writers practice to create ideas, produce story outlines, and immerse into character development culminating in a finished writing project. Whether your genre is memoir, journaling, poetry, fiction or non-fiction, the techniques presented will enrich and enliven your work.
