Fire Writing with Maya Kholsa at Glen Oaks Ranch 5-12-19

Join Sonoma County’s Poet Laureate, Maya Khosla, for an afternoon exploring the land and responding to it in our writings. We’ll hike at a gentle pace along the creek and into the hills at Sonoma Land Trust’s Glen Oaks Ranch and will pause to reflect and share short works in a supportive environment. Special focus will be given to surrounding natural areas that have been regenerating since the October 2017 fires. No prior experience necessary!About Maya Khosla:Maya Khosla is the Poet Laureate of Sonoma County (2018-2020).
