Nature Writing

Writing about the natural world can draw us into tighter community with the many animals, plants and environmental features that comprise our local landscape. This one day course is aimed at helping you identify what is at stake in the tale you want to tell about your environment. You might intend to write about a subject as small as a flower or a garden or something as expansive as a national park. The day proceeds through a combination of writing exercises, instruction and discussion. 


  • When: Sunday 17 November, 10am–4pm
  • Where: The Wheeler Centre, 176 Little Lonsdale St, Melbourne
