Lines in the Sand: A Day Course in Nature Writing by the Sea

Writing Rambles masterclass with Patrick Barkham

Sunday 17 May
10am - 4pm


Writing about the wild can be a form of appreciation, inspiration or even meditation. In this day long course you will join Patrick Barkham, author of Badgerlands, to visit Holkham Dunes national nature reserve at arguably its most beautiful time of year, to consider its obvious and hidden delights. Seeking sights, sounds, scents and textures you will roam through a varied and beautiful landscape of woodland, dunes, marsh and beach and search for seaside birds, lichens, orchids and duneland butterflies. You will explore ways of finding your own voice to describe what you see, and will harness moments of inspiration with the practical business of getting words onto the page.
