Join us for a nature writing retreat, July 25-26 with Soren Bondrup-Neilsen at the Harrison Lewis Centre on Nova Scotia’s beautiful South Shore. A weekend of honing your writing skills, friendship, thoughtful sharing of ideas and insights, good food, and learning to open your eyes and your mind to the natural world around us.

Bondrup-Neilsen is an ecologist who teaches at Acadia University. As well as being his profession, most of his personal interests involve nature. He is the author of four books – Merging: Contemplations of Farming and Ecology from Horseback; A sound like water dripping: In search of the Boreal Owl; Winter Nature: Common Mammals, Birds, Trees and Shrubs of the Maritimes; Winter on Diamond: An encounter with the Temagami Wilderness.

The writers’ weekend will include nature walks to discover and understand our surroundings, followed by individual writing time, and gathering as a group to share and discuss the participants’ work.

The course cost is $275, and includes the instructor’s fee, shared cabin accommodation for one (or two) nights, five meals (from Saturday breakfast through Sunday lunch).

Please book now, spaces are limited.
