Write Outside Your Door: A Nature Writing Workshop at Thoreau Farm

Henry David Thoreau was a masterful, creative writer. We can follow his example by interacting with nature, by paying close attention to its nuances, and by using all of our senses, as encouragement to write. This session will allow us to study nature in the late afternoon, approaching sunset.

Corinne H. Smith is the author of “Westward I Go Free: Tracing Thoreau’s Last Journey,” and “Henry David Thoreau for Kids: His Life and Ideas, With 21 Activities.” She is the Shop Manager of The Thoreau Society Shop at Walden Pond.




This program is presented as part of the Concord Festival of Authors.
