A workshop is to help you become a better nature writer. Over the course of 90-120 minutes we’ll use two complementary forms - haiku and flash fiction - and draw inspiration from the shoreline (sea, lake, pond, river or stream) and other parts of the natural world.

The rhythm of the streets

Walking lays the rhythm of the streets, archives the voice and the memory of the city. Our feet are an instrument, and they read the sonic composition of urban space. Our listening revitalizes social space. By walking we connect our body with the body of the city, as players and listeners of an urbanophonic orchestra - conversation about how walkers resonate with the city and how the city is sonorically composed by / of its walkers.
