Telling the Story of Wicken Fen

A full-day creative, non-fiction writing workshop with our writer in residence Guinevere Glasfurd.

This workshop will explore writer in residence Guinevere Glasfurd's work at Wicken Fen in 2019, and her approach to telling the story of the reserve through a small number of its iconic species.
