CHESTERTON | Eat & Exchange: “A Walk in the Woods: Nature, Exercise and Writing” will begin at 11 a.m. Saturday at Red Cup Cafe, 115 Broadway.

Join the IWC in a discussion of the use of nature and exercise as inspiration, led by poet Gordon Stamper Jr.

“Throughout the history of letters, nature and long walks have inspired our great writers," Stamper said. "From Wordsworth and Dickens to Frost, Joyce, Woolf, and recent award winning poet Harryette Mullen ('Urban Tumbleweed: Notes from a Tanka Diary').”

Stamper is a writer and facilitator for Highland Writers Group and has been a college writing instructor for more than 17 years. He was editor-in-chief for "Charles B. Tinkham: Selected Poems" (2006) and was a legal proofreader for 12 years. His published poetry includes “Yearning to be Free” (Danse Macabre, July 2011) and “Jazz Funeral” (Spirits, Fall 2005; reprinted on Sept. 1, 2006, NWI Times).

This will be the third in a series of six workshops held at local coffee houses. Each session explores a different topic in creative writing and will be facilitated by a different IWC member. These workshops are free and open to the public.
