Writing in Nature

This month we have a series of exciting workshops coming to Glengorm. First up is a full-day nature writing course with award winning writers Rose Skelton and Nomi Stone. In this one day intensive course, we will look at writing techniques that can be used across the genres of fiction, non-fiction and poetry, and then use some of those tools as we walk, observe and write along the spectacular coastline of the Glengorm Estate.

Here is a little information about the amazing tutors that will be running the workshop:

Rose Skelton is a long-time Mull resident, currently working on HOMESCAR, a collection of short stories set on an island in Scotland, which won the Larry Levis Fellowship for Fiction in 2017. Two of those stories will be published in literary journals in 2018, and she was recently short-listed for the Bridge Emerging Writing Award. Rose was a fellow at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts and has an MFA from Warren Wilson College in North Carolina. She now teaches creative writing and trains investigative journalists, but was previously a freelance journalist in west Africa, working for the BBC, The Guardian, the Sunday Times, and others. She is a banjo player and is a volunteer member of the Tobermory Lifeboat crew.

Nomi Stone is an American anthropologist and a poet who spends her summers in Mull. She is currently working on a poetry manuscript entitled FIELDWORKERS OF THE SUBLIME which is a series of poems looking at wonder, nature and scientists. “KILL CLASS,” her second collection of poems, will be published by Tupelo Press in 2019. Winner of a 2018 Pushcart Prize, Nomi’s poems appear in POETRY, American Poetry Review, The New Republic, The Best American Poetry 2016, and elsewhere. She teaches at Princeton University and has an MFA in Poetry from Warren Wilson College
