In this workshop, participants will explore how the lands we carry with us can be both places of belonging and epicentres of disconnection. Drawing from Robert Macfarlane’s lyrical book of essays, Landmarks, participants look at creating their own word-hoards for the places they live and the landscapes we carry within them in the form of personal or familial memories. Writers of all genres and all levels are most welcome. Please come prepared with notebook and pen/pencil, and some sturdy shoes for walking in the Garden.

This is a workshop event. Admission to this event is not included in a festival pass.
