Led by teaching artist Robin Criscuolo, seasoned Forest Floor instructor and published writer, specializing in writing on the natural world. Her own writing has been heavily influenced by her love of outdoors and she is thrilled to bring her passion for writing to Forest Floor with this exciting new offering for budding young creatives.
In these weekend workshops, we will explore the woods, engage with wildlife and find deeper connection with our voices, the power of words, and the natural world. All while getting dirty, playing tons of fun games, and exercising our observational and imaginative muscles with playful and thoughtful writing tools.
Participants can focus on poetry, fiction or nonfiction or try out some of each.
Explore and strengthen your creative voice!
