The Writing from Nature weekend workshop from June 2-4 helps writers in all genres spark new ideas and drafts through immersion in the natural world. Chris Woodside, who has been writing about the backcountry for a quarter century and whose book about Laura Ingalls Wilder came out a few months ago, invites you to her third annual workshop. This year we're at the quiet Cold River Camp whose buildings are clustered in Evans Notch in the northern White Mountains of New Hampshire.

Announcing our Saturday night speakers, a husband-and-wife duo who collectively know more about the White Mountains than almost anyone.

Brad Ray rescued and recovered hundreds of climbers on Mount Washington in his long career as a snow ranger. He understands what sets off an avalanche as few in this world do. Wilderness writer Rebecca Oreskes took an early retirement offer from the United States Forest Service in 2013 after 25 years in various wilderness program and policy positions. Rebecca serves on the editorial board of the International Journal of Wilderness and the committee of the journal Appalachia. She is the co-author with Doug Mayer of Mountain Voices: Stories of Life and Adventure in the White Mountains and Beyond.

Sign up today! Writers of all levels who work in fiction or non-fiction, all welcome. No advance manuscript submissions required. On Friday night we'll tell stories about ourselves in nature. The rest of the weekend we'll explore the natural world as Chris guides you in writing.
