Nature writer Suzan Bellincampi leads workshop at Chilmark library


For 16-plus years, Suzan Bellincampi has written a nature column every week, and she’ll lead a Nature Writing Workshop at the Chilmark library on Wednesday, Jan. 23, at 4:30 pm. Bellincampi will share her methods, mistakes, and mojo, and encourage you to put pen to paper. Her latest book, “The Nature of Martha’s Vineyard,” will be available for purchase.

Bellincampi, who lives in West Tisbury, has spent 20 years on Martha’s Vineyard sharing nature through teaching, writing, and speaking. She is director of Mass Audubon’s Felix Neck Wildlife Sanctuary, and writes the weekly “All Outdoors” column for the Vineyard Gazette. Her first book, “Martha’s Vineyard: A Field Guide to Island Nature,” was named one of the Best Books of New England by the Boston Globe in 2014. Her latest book is a retrospective of her best essays.
