Nature Writing Workshop in Noordhollands Duin Reservaat

  • Castricum Station Kramersweg Castricum, NH, 1901 Netherlands (map)


Group Writing Exploration of Noordhollands Duinreservaat:

We will meet at Castricum train station and walk west, through the lovely Castricum Bos. We will be stopping for writing exercises and group discussions around the theme of Immersion and Creativity in Nature. Our exploration will bring us to the beach of the North Sea and then back to Castricum Station.

Participants must be able-bodied to walk a total area of about 10k (6miles). The hike is very easy, and we will take frequent breaks, including for lunch.

The hike and exercises will be facilitated by Hannah Behrens, an experienced writing teacher. The cost is 25 Euros. Participants are responsible for their own transportation to Castricum Station. The meeting point will be in front of Castricum Station between 10:30 and 11:00. We will be heading toward the forest promptly at 11:15, so please arrive on time, with the following items:

Personal lunch or snacks
Rain gear and good walking shoes
Writing journal and pen/pencil
Park entrance fee 1.80 for a day pass

We plan to return to Castricum Station by 4:00 pm. All are welcome to stay an extra hour for complimentary a coffee or tea at Bij de Buurvrouw cafe, located across from the train station.
