The writer Arnold Thomas Fanning has always loved walking and in recent years has become increasingly aware of the links between walking and creativity, not to mention how the simple act of walking can boost well-being. These ideas are all explored in this lively, participatory, and practical three-hour workshop which includes presentations on key themes, readings, as well as an opportunity to write, share, and critique each other’s work in a structured and supportive environment. There will be plenty of time for discussion and of course a walk through the beautiful gardens of Bantry House.
