NATURE AND POETRY with WILL NIXON

A walk out to the Saugerties Lighthouse with a notebook and pen in hand to see what nature has to teach. We' ll write a poem that stretches our imagination as well as our observation skills. If you can look at an autumn leaf and see a story of life, you can write a poem. "If I were to name the three most precious resources of life I should say books, friends, and nature; and the greatest of these, at least the most constant and always at hand, is nature," wrote John Burroughs, the celebrated Catskills nature writer, a century ago. 

Will Nixon and Michael Perkins were recently honored by The Woodstock Land Conservancy for their popular book,WALKING WOODSTOCK: JOURNEYS INTO THE WILD  HEART OF AMERICA'S MOST FAMOUS SMALL TOWN. Will Nixon's poetry books include ACROSTIC WOODSTOCK, LOVE IN THE CITY OF GRUDGES, and MY LATE MOTHER AS A RUFFED GROUSE.
