A workshop to cultivate and articulate a sense of surroundings through creative writing prompts and poetry practice.

This workshop explores the relationship between taking the time and developing a practice of observation as foundational to good writing. Drawing upon current discussions in science communication and pedagogy, this talk combines Chan (Zen) Nature poetry traditions of observing “the flux of phenomena” and haiku forms to encourage practitioners to consider observation as a practical and step in creative endeavors.
