Write your heart into place with Silke on a 'Hiku Hike' in Plettenberg Bay. Hear words and water and add your own to commemorate your visit to the lagoon shore 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 the scenic location of Poortjies Beach, Plettenberg Bay (depending on the weather). En route, the poet stops to read a couple of poems about the area, with technical commentary. While walking, you compose your own poem or reflective piece of writing, based on your sense 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.
