Creative Writing Workshop with Claire Moeder (Event in French)

Author-in-residence Claire Moeder offers a group writing workshop in immersion in the Reford Gardens. The workshop allows us to experiment with our relationship to natural places and the plant world and to decompartmentalize our view of the living.

With several guided writing exercises, participants will be invited to embody the voice of plants or trees and imagine their life stories. They will be able to familiarize themselves with the notions of nature writing, automatic writing and autofiction to come and feed a collective literary herbarium.

Number of places limited to 10 participants

Open to all, from 15 years old

Free activity with the purchase of daily access to the Reford Gardens (purchase must be completed at registration). Members of Les Amis des Jardins de Métis will need to present their valid membership card at the entrance to the site.


Materials to bring: personal notebook, pen or pencil, outdoor clothing
