How do the blooms of summer inspire you through language? Throughout literary history, poets have a reputation for recording the vibrant foliage and beauty of abundant life in verse. In this workshop we will do just that–by reading and discussing nature poems together and writing our own poems in response to what we find at Second Nature at Reads Creek nursery. Open to adults of all skill levels. Bring a notebook and a desire to write!

Cost: $25 – Please make out a check made out to Nikki Wallschlaeger, or bring cash to the class at S7301 Hwy 14, Readstown the day of class
