My short essay Writing Personal Field Notes at Land Trust Preserves has been posted on the Deschutes Land Trust website:
“What writer hasn’t thought about going on an expedition for the adventure and discovery, and for inspiration. Should such an opportunity come your way, how will you decide what to write? Which details will you choose to record?”
“A writer’s field notes might be a list of words, short phrases, paragraphs, a story, or a poem. Field notes may also include ideas, questions, names and labels, memories, and even maps and sketches. . . .” [Read the entire essay on the Deschutes Land Trust website.]
If any of you will be in Central Oregon tomorrow, Saturday August 23, 2014, there are still a few spaces in my Field Notes Writing Workshop at Indian Ford Meadow Preserve. The workshop, sponsored by the Deschutes Land Trust, is from 9:00 to 11:00. There is no cost (same as all the Land Trust’s guided hikes and outings) but you need to sign-up through the Land Trust’s website: http://www.deschuteslandtrust.org/events/hikes/field-notes-indian-ford-meadow-preserve.
