We will learn about the wildlife writer’s craft, and then head outdoors. Participants will sharpen their observational skills in the grounds of Madingley Hall, and then write about what they see, hear, touch, and smell. You don’t have to be an expert naturalist or a gifted writer to take part – all that’s needed is a love of words and wildlife.

Please note: During session 2 there is a walk around the grounds at Madingley Hall. Please ensure you bring comfortable and suitable outdoor clothing and footwear.


Unless otherwise stated, teaching and assessment for ICE courses are in English. Students whose first language is not English should refer to the Competence in the English Language Policy for further guidance.
