What does it mean to be in intimate relationship with the landscape? Therapist, writer and gardener Marchelle Farrell leads a relaxed creative writing session where you are encouraged to explore the relationship between our inner and outer worlds. Take time out to notice our everyday landscapes and the ways they shape us, then use this experience to reshape and reimagine the stories we tell ourselves through writing.


Part of City of Literature weekend 2024


City of Literature is a Norfolk & Norwich Festival and National Centre for Writing presentation, programmed by the National Centre for Writing.


Marchelle Farrell is a therapist, writer and amateur gardener. Born in Trinidad and Tobago, she has spent the last twenty years attempting to become hardy in the UK. She has trained and worked as a consultant psychiatrist and psychotherapist. When not neglecting it for the care of her young children, or her work in the community, Marchelle spends much of her time getting to know her country garden in Somerset and writing about the things the garden teaches her about herself. Her debut Uprooting won the Nan Shepherd Prize. Image © Richard Grassie
