Writing from Nature: Aberystwyth University Lifelong Learning – Courses for All

Thursday 6th June - Sunday 9th June

Code: HL303W

How does the natural world inspire and inform creative writing? How can writing about your natural surroundings enrich your writing, as well as your relationship with nature? This course, suitable for both beginners and experienced writers, will seek inspiration from the scenic, wooded surroundings of Gladstone’s Country park in Hawarden. Students will be granted a permit to explore those peaceful areas of the park not normally open to the public.

Tutor Chris Kinsey was BBC Wildlife Poet of the Year in 2008. She received an Arts Council of Wales Writer’s Bursary in 2000 and has had three collections of poetry published: Kung Fu Lullabies, and Cure for a Crooked Smile by Ragged Raven Press, and, most recently, Swarf by Smokestack Books in 2011. She also writes a regular Nature Diary for Cambria.

Aberystwyth University has chosen Gladstone’s Library as the venue for its programme of residential creative writing courses this summer.

  • £90 (excluding accommodation), £80 concessions. Special rate for accommodation at Gladstone's Library, ask for details.
