Gardens are places of beauty and escape, and also of inspiration. In this class co-taught by Chris Fehlhaber, Assistant Horticulturist at Chanticleer Garden, and novelist and essayist Margo Rabb, we’ll discuss how a public garden can inspire all kinds of writing, from private journal entries to memoir, fiction, poetry, essays, and articles. We’ll read short pieces about gardens and nature, write our own new work in the garden, and discuss how knowing plants and garden spaces can enhance our creativity, help us access new ideas, and deepen our understanding of our writing, our lives, and the natural world. The class will be held outdoors at Chanticleer, with an indoor location in the event of rain.
Fee: $42.00
