with DyAnne Korda
Saturday, October 5, 2019
9:00 AM - 3:00 PM
As autumn’s colorful landscapes peak, we pause to appreciate summer’s bounty and prepare for the season to come. Set aside a day at the Ely Folk School on the edge of the Boundary Waters Wilderness to discover the richness of your inner harvest through nature writing. In a supportive group circle, you will generate written pieces through reading, discussion and free-flow, nature writing exercises. The class will focus primarily on the early stages of the writing process and include time to reflect on our work and share. Weather pending, we may take a short walk
