UPDATE: Our guest and staff health and safety are paramount to us. As a precautionary measure Writing, Another Way of Seeing scheduled for June 17th has been cancelled. You can still participate in this event on August 19th!
Do you enjoy the outdoors? Enjoy writing (or think you might)?
Join us, then, for a trek along the woodland trails and lake shores on Castle grounds. We will spend our time walking slowly, sitting in stillness and stopping at special sights that call to you. We will use journal writing, prose and poetry to help us experience the world and our connections to it in a different way. The Brook Trail, where we focus our adventures, involves easy to moderate hiking.
No writing experience is necessary, but please bring a small note pad and pencil. It would be best to dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes. You might consider bringing a hat, bug repellent, and a small cushion to sit on.
