“Seeing is the Seed” is the Arboretum’s writing workshop, which will began January 2014. The second season will begin on Sunday, September 28.
We are a group of people exploring the forms, content, and themes of nonfiction writing about the natural world, travel, food, gardens (you name it) and how it relates to personal experience to be wrestled with and brought to the page.
We are curious people–chefs, gardeners, veterinarians, novelists, lovers of landscape and geography–and would love for you to join us.
Writing experience is not necessary, nor is it necessary for you to have attended previous sessions of this workshop. We somteimes have short writing exercises and optional assignments. This is a no-pressure environment.
Paula Panich is a Los Angeles-based food and garden writer who has contributed to the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, Gastronomica and other publications. She is author of Cultivating Words: The Guide to Writing about the Plants and Gardens You Love, and other books.
