A Room with a View: Creative Writing in the bird hide
Wednesday 23rd October 2019
Join writer Victoria Leslie on a journey through the Avalon Marshes, foraging for inspiration before arriving at the Decoy Hide, where a series of creative writing activities will encourage you to reflect on the interconnection of nature and narrative. This workshop is part of the Hide & Seek Project, an initiative designed to uncover the stories of our wetlands, using bird hides as creative and reflective spaces as they are ideally situated for the study and contemplation of nature.

12.45 p.m. – 2.15 p.m. Workshopping in the Decoy Hide, before returning to the Avalon Marshes Visitor Centre
2.15 p.m. – 3 p.m. Refreshments at Marshes Hub Tea Shop and reflection
