A Yellowstone Writing Workshop
Ilona Popper, M.A.
Writers have been captured by Yellowstone’s beauty and mystery even before the park was founded. Yet, this place is also a wild laboratory. Discover the ways your own personal field observations and the latest in Yellowstone science may inspire your writing. Spend mornings in the field watching wildlife or taking hikes to beautiful places. Afternoons adjourn to the studio to explore an organic way of writing, which draws on your unconscious, creative mind. Listen to each other’s work and explore techniques and readings. You’ll leave this workshop with new drafts and sensory memories from the wild.
