Join St. Louis Press Club members for a nature-inspired writing workshop/guided tour of the Missouri Botanical Garden from 1:30-3 p.m. Saturday, June 10, to cultivate greater knowledge and techniques to describe our natural world.

Our workshop leaders: Sean Doherty, vice president of education for the Missouri Botanical Garden, and Michaella Thornton, award-winning writer and educator whose work has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize, Best of the Net and Best Microfiction.

Participation is limited. Register now for this unique workshop. We strive to host inclusive, accessible events. To request an accommodation or for questions, please contact St. Louis Press Club Executive Director Laura Schnarr at

Program Details: Doherty and Thornton will lead a roughly one-hour educational tour guiding communicators and writers to help identify plants, increase observational and descriptive skills, and build vocabulary, all to lead to writing more perceptively about landscapes and the natural world. A brief writing exercise will be included in the workshop. Please bring a notebook or electronic tablet.

See you on June 10 for World-Building for the Missouri Botanical Garden!
