Chalk Stream Writing Workshop at Andover Library

Are you keen to try creative writing? Would you like to explore the wonderful world of chalk streams? Join us for this story walk and nature writing workshop!

We’ll start by taking a walk along the Upper Anton, hearing stories about this special habitat. Then, we’ll head indoors to turn our inspiration into creative writing.

Chalk Stream Writing Workshop

Saturday 8th June, 1-4pm

Andover Library


If you’re under 18, and use the workshop to write a poem, why not enter it into our poetry competition? You could win £75 of National Book Tokens, and have your poem published in a commemorative booklet.

The walk and workshop will be led by Dawn Nelson – a performance storyteller and author based within the beautiful South Downs. Her passion is landscape, heritage and nature connection through the wonder of story, in all its forms.

This event is part of the Tales from the Riverbank Literature Festival – a celebration of how rivers inspire creativity. This festival is a collaboration between the Watercress and Winterbournes Landscape Partnership Scheme and Hampshire Library Service.

Age range: Suitable for ages 12+. All under-18s must be accompanied by a participating adult.

What to bring: Appropriate clothes for the walk (wellies and a coat if rainy, suncream and a hat if sunny), water, a notepad, and a pen.

Accessibility: This event involves around 2.5 miles of walking. Part of the route may be on wet or uneven ground. The venue has an accessible toilet.

Parking: The closest medium and long-stay car parks are George Yard and the Chantry Centre; both are pay-and-display. Please consider coming by public transport, or on foot, where possible.
