Write your heart into place with Silke on a 'Hiku Hike' in Hogsback. Hear words and water and add your own to commemorate your visit to Hogsback by means of 'verbal snapshots'. NO WRITERLY EXPERIENCE is necessary for this activity, merely a wish to centre yourself by means of writing words down in response to your environment.
The 'Hiku Hikes' are done in scenic locations around Hogsback (depending on the weather). En route, the poet stops to reads a couple of poems from Hogsback Hiku with commentary. While walking, you compose your own poem or reflective piece of writing, based on your visual experience of the surroundings. Feedback is given at the end of the walk.
As one Hiku Hiker wrote afterwards:
"Thank you so much for such an inspirational walk. I thought it would just be a walk but it turned out to be more than that. ... I'm not a writer by profession but the workshop was very helpful. Who knows my interest in writing poetry might have been born that morning."
Bring pen and paper.
