Service Description

The Story Launch Media Saunter & Prose class is a 2.5 hour saunter through the gorgeous gardens and forests of Seattle's Arboretum. Students will learn the basics of how to write prose and become inspired by creative pieces written by outdoor adventurers before sauntering through the park. This intimate guided tour will take students on beautiful trails past towering conifers, lush green ground-cover and vibrant blooms. The instructor, Kris Parfitt Travers, is a writer and a wilderness guide. Kris has been teaching, coaching and guiding people to be their best for over 30 years. Kris will guide and share stories of specific landscape features found in the park and students will have the opportunity to write a bit of prose, poetry or something creative inspired by the beauty at all three stops. The final pause will provide each student to share one of the pieces they wrote during the class. Arrive on time and ready to begin. Bring something to write with and upon, like a notebook. Make sure to bring snacks and something to drink, we will not be in an area with quick access to food and beverage.
