Event Details

Get ready for an enchanting day at Willow Springs Park, where words come alive amidst nature’s embrace.

Please join us for an immersive eco-poetry activity led by published poet and California Creative Corps grant recipient Nancy Lynée Woo and Urban Nature Field Specialist Blanca Diaz. We will enjoy an educational nature walk around the Willow Springs grounds, and then write to a prompt and share with each other. All levels of writers are welcome. No experience necessary.

This experience will involve a short, mild to moderate hike, and will require participants to walk and stand for up to an hour. Please wear comfortable clothes and closed-toed shoes.

There is no designated sitting area at the park, but we are able to provide chairs. If you have your own and would like to bring it, please do and let us know. Note: We will be leaving our chairs at a set location while we walk around the park.

It is recommended to wear layers as the weather can be mutable during this time of year.

We will have notebooks and pens available for you, but if you have your own, please feel free to bring them.

Please bring:

  • Your reusable water bottle
  • Protection from the sun, such as a hat, sunglasses, long-sleeved shirt, sunscreen
  • A camping chair if you have one (optional)
  • A notebook (optional)

This session will be recorded and posted online at DSTLArts.org and the DSTL Arts YouTube channel to increase access to the arts. We are only recording the instructors, not the participants. All shares will be private.

Our intention is to cultivate a safe, welcoming space for all to enjoy poetry in the park.

Space is limited. If you register but end up not being able to attend, please cancel your registration so that we may get an accurate head count for chairs and notebooks.

This programming is brought to you by a partnership between the Friends of Willow Springs Park, the City of Long Beach Office of Climate Action and Sustainability, and DSTL Arts. This activity is funded in part by the California Arts Council, a state agency.

If you need any accessibility accommodations, please email nancy@dstlarts.org.

Come and be inspired by the power of words and the diversity of the park. Don’t miss out on this enchanting experience!
