Calendar Corner (10): New Nature Writing Course

I'm told there is a 10% discount for Wildlife Trust members on a Nature Writing course at Ty Newydd, Llanystumdwy, North Wales this May. The tutors are the well-known naturalists, Nigel Brown and Mark Cocker.

This 4½ day course will involve trips out everyday to study the local wildlife and then time back at Ty Newydd for group work and individual writing. This course is suitable for beginners as well as more experienced writers.

The course would develop writing skills. The organisers say that 'We are very keen to work with Wildlife Trusts and are therefore very happy to offer a 10% discount to members.'

Chris Kinsey asked me to pass this information on to others who might be interested...

I don't know Nigel Brown, but Mark Cocker is an incredible tutor. I'll be very jealous. ;-)

My wife Karen Hoy went on an Arvon course where he was one of the tutors, and I can't recommend him highly enough.

Alas, Alan, I'm not actually going on the course. I was just asked by Chris Kinsey to make it known...

No worries, I thought I'd say how good Mark Cocker was. ;-)

'Crow Country' is an inspirational book - though as a Norfolk-lover, I may be a bit biased!

Wonderful book, it deserves your bias. ;-)

Are you involved with Mark's current big project by the way?
