Jackie is the award-winning former editor of the Garden Design Journal and the English Garden magazine, and she continues to write regular features for both magazines. In this workshop Jackie will help you look at the lives of several of our most famous poets, novelists and playwrights and at their relationship with their gardens. There will be individual and group exercises in which participants will have a chance to write short pieces of prose or poetry either based on the Botanic Garden or on ‘remembered’ gardens. The course is aimed at anyone with an interest in writing and gardens, but no prior professional writing experience is needed.
