Warm Up and Write! Poetry Writing Workshop

Provided by
Olbrich Botanical Gardens

Saturday, January 26, 2019
9 a.m. - 12 p.m.

Explore a side of Olbrich Botanical Gardens that many people never experience - the gardens in the winter time! The Greater Madison Writing Project, in partnership with Olbrich Botanical Gardens, is hosting a half-day writing workshop for young writers in grades 3-12.
After a winter tour of the outdoor gardens, we will use the hibernating winter world as inspiration when we head inside and play around with different forms of creative writing. This program is led by Greater Madison Writing Project Summer Institute Fellows and experienced teachers of writing whose goal is to inspire and support writers of all abilities. Dress for the weather to spend about 30 minutes outside observing nature. Bring a notebook and writing supplies.
