Description: Writers from Emily Dickinson to Edith Wharton and Eudora Welty have found their gardens to be wellsprings of sensory experience that stimulated their writing. In this one-hour workshop, be inspired by images of gardens and write spontaneously in response to prompts - verbal or visual cues provided by the workshop leader.

Jane Roy Brown is an award-winning writer and editor who lives in western Massachusetts. Jane works as writer-editor at Native Plant Trust, a native plant conservation organization based in Framingham, Massachusetts. She also runs an independent writing workshop series, The Heart of Story: Writing Stories of Our Lives (theheartofstory.com). With Susan Haltom, Jane is co-author of One Writer's Garden: Eudora Welty's Home Place (University Press of Mississippi, September 2011). Her writing has also appeared in numerous periodicals including Landscape Architecture, Harvard Magazine, and Preservation, and she was a regular contributor to The Boston Globe travel section for 10 years.
