Anne Theresa White has been mentoring young writers in the community for several years.
Her daily walks at the Scout Island Nature Centre feed her creative spirit.
She has even written a magical children’s book set there.
During the school fall break in November White and Scout Island Nature Centre staff naturalist, Paula Laita, will combine nature walks and outdoor games with writing activities to nurture the expressive potential of participating children.
The course is open for children ages seven to 14 and will run Nov. 13, 14, and 15 from 1 to 4 p.m. each day.
“Join us for a no-pressure exploration of writing about what we see, feel and discover while playing in nature,” invites nature centre manager Sue Hemphill.
