Gardeners learn with time and experience that interesting and complex gardens are based on underlying structures made of soft and hard elements. Writers learn with time and experience that effective writing is based on good bones.

Join writer and teacher, Paula Panich, for a nuts and bolts workshop regarding writing on subjects related to gardens, houses and horticulture. Explore the differences among the forms of non-fiction, including news writing, feature stories, essays, and full-length books. We will discuss how garden writing intersects with food and travel writing.
