We'll meet in a pastoral, Walden Pond-like setting: a state park where George Washington crossed the Delaware in 1776, readying his troops in sturdy boats on a frigid December night to launch a surprise attack in Trenton. It's 40-ish minutes from Philadelphia, 75 from New York, 15 from New Hope/Lambertville, and 30 from Princeton. After introductions, we'll cross the river like Washington did—but by bridge, not boat, and in the opposite direction. At one nook, we'll sit, and I'll share a selection of creative work—a poem, a memoir excerpt, or a short work of fiction—that has inspired me when I've taken this walk before. Rather than discussing what the work 'means', we'll let the language sink in. We'll breathe in and slow down. We'll walk carefully, with our minds toward the environment. Then, we'll arrive at one of my favorite spots along the river. It's perfect for writing, and it's just secluded enough to hear yourself think. I'll ask you to take out your pen and your notebook. I'll turn over a twenty-minute timer for our free-writing session. Then we'll share our work with each other. We'll also carve out time to talk a bit about the 'writer's life'—whatever that means to you.
Hi, I'm Jeanette. I believe anyone can write, and most people should try. I'm a writer, editor, audio producer, and journalist. I was named a finalist for the 2019 Iowa Review Award in Poetry, and a semifinalist for the 2019 92Y Discovery Poetry Contest. At the 92Y, the Iowa Writers' Workshop's Summer Session, the Poets House, and Princeton, I've had the privilege of studying with some of the greatest writers of our time. My work has appeared in several literary journals, including the nation's oldest: Poet Lore, where Walt Whitman was a subscriber. But my first poems were written for the stage, stapled in chapbooks to support my hometown poetry slam in Des Moines, Iowa. I've worked with writers of all ages, from pre-teens to 80-somethings. We all start somewhere!

This experience is special because it balances what we all seek from nature—creativity, peace, inspiration—with 'real talk' from a writer who's been there, literally. You'll walk in a writer's shoes. We'll stop at the secret, quiet nooks along the river to read where I read, and write where I write. You'll leave with my feedback on your free-writing, a curated packet of work that's inspired me, as well as notes from your peers.

This tour is as much inspired by Thoreau as it is by NYT bestselling author David Gessner: "Most nature writers[...]have trouble escaping the spinning hamster wheels of their brains." You got this. P.S. If you're seeking a workshop at a time slot that's not listed here, please message me — thanks!
