Nature Hike & Outdoor Workshop at the Cleveland Metroparks

Multiple Instructors

External stimuli and a change of environment are both useful tools for inspiring the creative process—especially after another Covidtine. Escape the confines of your house to hike and write with poets Michelle R Smith and Jeremy Jusek at the Metroparks! Follow along with the nature-oriented writing exercises or free write at your leisure—the goal is open conversation and stress-free writing in a relaxed social setting.

This workshop takes place at The Watershed Stewardship Center, 2277 W Ridgewood Drive, Parma, OH 44134.
