The Family of Things: Writing the Self and Nature through the Work of Mary Oliver
October 13, 2018 @ EST 10:00 am - 5:00 pm$139
Mary Oliver’s writing connects the human with the universal of nature, of the earth. She focuses on the importance of observation, and writes of paying attention and being open to being astonished. Through a deep, day-long exploration of Oliver’s poetry and essays in the natural beauty of the Gell Center in Bristol, we will write in multiple forms, ultimately unmasking our truths, and following Oliver’s advice to share our stories. Light lunch included.
