WRITING FOR NATURE WORKSHOPS
Available for all ages and events
Writing for Nature workshop
Stories have a unique ability to connect and engage with people of all ages, beliefs systems and backgrounds. What better way to come together and try to help our rapidly deteriorating natural surroundings than to write for nature together? During an hour-long workshop, I will work with your group to encourage and prompt ways to bring about awareness and positive change for nature through literature. Workshops can be tailored to any size or age group.
Ray is available for author visits within her local community of Essex and surrounding areas within a 50-mile radius, or happy to travel further afield providing accommodation can be provided.

"Ray came to our school on World Book Day and made the day very special. She addressed a whole year group of year 7 students, talking about her passion for the environment and her inspiration for writing ‘Earthlings.’ She also took creative writing workshops with groups of year 8 and year 9 students, helping them to craft their own stories about the environment. The results were excellent and we were very proud of what our students were able to achieve with Ray’s help.
Definitely, the best World Book Day that I’ve experienced and well worth the effort to organise the day. Ray’s enthusiasm is infectious and she was a delight to welcome to the school."
