In the third episode of Writer in the World Podcast, author and Goddard faculty Sherri L Smith talks about why writers should take time to express gratitude to trees and be prepared to listen.
Smith teaches fiction, graphic novel, non-fiction, screenplays, and fantasy at the MFA in Writing program at Goddard College. Fellow faculty Rahna Reiko Rizzuto interviews.
Smith recently taught a workshop on Enchantivism, designed to deepen themes of social justice in writing through deep storytelling, mythology, and dreamwork. She speaks about “forest bathing,” a therapeutic practice that began in Japan.
What is your “path” through the forest as a writer, and how do you encourage your seedlings?
Find out what the trees have to say in response in this enchanted episode of The Writer in the World Podcast.
