Free Writers' Seminar This Sunday, May 18

Antioch Writers' Workshop and Books & Co are offering the next Free Writers' Seminar this Sunday, May 18 2:00-3:30 p.m. at Books & Co at The Greene.

As spring segues into summer, we all feel drawn to enjoy the outdoors more and more. And of course, as writers, we're tempted to write about those encounters with nature! In this workshop, we will explore how we might use nature in our writing, how we can gather information about nature, and with whom we would like to share our work.

This session will be led by Bill Felker, who has been writing nature columns and almanacs for regional and national publications since 1984. His Poor Will’s Almanack has appeared as an annual publication since 2003 and he hosts a weekly segment by the same name on WYSO, the NPR radio station in Yellow Springs. Exploring everything from animal husbandry to phenology, Felker has become well known to farmers as well as urban readers throughout the country. He is an occasional speaker on the environment at nature centers, churches and universities, and he has presented papers related to almanacking at academic conferences, as well. Felker has received three awards for his almanac writing from the Ohio Newspaper Association. "Better writing cannot be found in America's biggest papers," stated the judge on the occasion of Felker’s award in 2000.

Join Bill Felker to learn more about writing poems at Books & Co at The Green on May 18 from 2:00 to 3:30 PM. No reservations are required for the Second Sunday Free Writers' Workshop, but expressed intention to attend is appreciated. Call Books & Co at The Greene at 937- 429-6302.
