Bainbridge Island author Jennifer J. Wilhoit will discuss her book “Writing on the Landscape: Essays and Practices to Write, Roam, Renew” at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 11 at Eagle Harbor Book Company in downtown Winslow.
Wilhoit is a “spiritual ecologist,” the founder of TEALarbor stories and the author of books, articles and blogs focused on inner/outer landscapes.
“Writing on the Landscape” offers a way through some of the challenges we face when we write, including difficulties in daily life that impede our progress. Writing and nature-based practices that we do repeatedly over time can more deeply connect us to the earth and to ourselves, thus enhancing our written outcome.
This book uses rich language to inspire anyone compelled to write or live more fully in connection with self and nature. It is a practical, lyrical book aimed at helping blocked writers to become unstuck.
Based on a narrow slice of TEALarbor stories’ work, “Writing on the Landscape” is especially for aspiring writers, nature lovers, and those who want to deepen their lived expression of their humanity as part of the natural world.
