“True ease in writing comes from art, not chance...”
Alexander Pope

With the proliferation of blogs, travel websites and on-demand printing, there has never been a better time to describe your travel in print. 

On Sunday Oct. 16th, join writer and nature enthusiast Nicola Ross in her workshop for writers of all levels. In this mini-workshop Nicola provides insight into how to bring your stories alive so they delight your friends, family and complete strangers! The workshop also involves a short hike so please wear appropriate footwear and warm clothing! Pre-registration required. 

Your instructor:

The Niagara Escarpment is embedded in Nicola Ross’s psyche, and the Credit River courses through her veins. Years spent exploring the countryside prompted her to use a pen to help protect her home. A columnist with In the Hills magazine and the award-winning author of six books including Caledon Hikes: Loops & Lattes, Nicola combines her knowledge of the landscape with her hiking skills to bring you routes that criss-cross Halton’s dramatic cliffs and sprawling farm fields.

Date: 10am to 3pm, Sunday, October 16, 2016
Location: Alton Mill Arts Centre, 1402 Queen St W, Caledon, ON L7K 0C3
