The Garden House is a secret garden tucked away behind houses in Warleigh Road, Brighton. It's run by Bridget and Deborah who host a variety of workshops there. And a really special place as you'll see from the photos.
The writing prompts we used were inspired by a visit to the North Wales forest last year for a weekend of writing facilitated by Jill Teague. It was part of Jill's Treading Softly: walking and writing in the natural environment programme.
Writing 1: Find a space in the garden and write about what you see looking out and around into the distance. Go with the flow of your writing.
Writing 2: Find something you're drawn to. Focus in on it. Write about what you find.
Writing 3: Re-read your writing and underline the words and phrases that stand out to you. Use them to create a shorter piece of writing or poem.
We found these prompts worked really well.
