Calling all nature lovers! Temporarily put your binoculars down, lay your rock-pooling net aside and close your ID book. An upcoming event from Yorkshire Wildlife Trust will introduce you to another brilliant way to enjoy wildlife.

The workshop is open to everyone – you don’t need to know anything about nature or writing because this is the best way to learn about both! Find out more

A ‘Nature Writing’ workshop at Yorkshire Wildlife Trust's Living Seas Centre at South Landing in Flamborough on Saturday 16 September, 10am – 2pm, will show you how to use writing to understand, appreciate and enjoy the rich natural history of our coasts. You will also learn to shape your experiences in a way that others will enjoy reading, and get inspiration from the beach and woodland in the company of one of the Centre’s experts.

Workshop leader and writer Tamsin Constable said, “Feeling connected to nature does wonderful things. It boosts health and wellbeing, in all kinds of ways that we’re only just beginning properly to understand. Writing is a great way to increase that connection. And if people can write about nature in a way that others will enjoy reading, then special places such as the Living Seas Centre can have an even greater reach.”

Living Seas Centre manager Anthony Hurd said, “We already run lots of nature-based activities, but this is the first time we’ve offered nature-writing at the Centre. The workshop is open to everyone – you don’t need to know anything about nature or writing because this is the best way to learn about both!”
