The Aptos Public Library will host several journal making and writing workshops in October, led by local poet, author and artist Patrice Vecchione. Called “Step into Nature,” the journaling workshops will teach participants how to discover and tell their stories by recording thoughts, feelings and observations.
Vecchione will discuss her new book Step into Nature: Nurturing Imagination and Spirit in Everyday Life which explains how time in nature can restore imagination and how a personal relationship with a natural place not only deepens our own lives but our ability to care for the earth.
Vecchione will also share details on how to publish journals, how to work with an agent, secure a major publishing house, the process of going from proposal to completed book, and the book tour.
There will be a total of three sessions held at the Aptos Library:
- Session 1- Book talk, 7-8 p.m. Oct. 8
- Session 2- Journal making & writing workshop, 7-8:30 p.m. Oct. 22
- Session 3- Journal making & writing workshop, 7-8:30 p.m. Oct. 29
