Scribes Youth Writing Workshop: Exploring Nature Through Ecopoetry

In this workshop held at Wren’s Nest, we will explore the beauty of nature through ecopoetry! We will use words to express our connection with the environment and its inhabitants. Through writing exercises and discussion, we will discover how ecopoetry can inspire us. By the end of the workshop, you will have written your own ecopoems that celebrate the natural world and its wonders.

About the Workshop Series

At The Wren’s Nest, our mission is to cultivate the next generation of writers and readers by championing the power of using your voice to tell your story. Our Scribes writing workshops for middle-grade students (grades 5-8) are led by professional local writers, and each explores a unique topic, from writing basics to journalism to poetry.

These in-person workshops are open to middle-grade students in Georgia. Spaces are limited, and admission will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis. For each workshop, a $10 registration fee includes workshop attendance, museum admission, a notebook and writing utensil, and light refreshments.
