After taking a walk on the Nature Trail at the Wilderness Station for inspiration, Braelyn Johnson, BreAria Cannon, Ronin Jones and Hunter Jones co-wrote a story in the Murfreesboro Parks & Rec. Creative Writing class. After they completed their work, the aspiring writers sat down on a bench on the trail and instructor Pam Williams read to them their two page short story.

Walks along the Barfield Park Wilderness Trail, watching the river flow, and taking a peek at a snake inside the Wilderness Station all helped local students become better writers.
A Creative Writing Class was recently held by the Murfreesboro Parks and Recreation Department and local children did a great job of sharpening their skills, with the help of a good educator and nature.
These are a few photos captured at the event by Jim Davis with the Murfreesboro Parks and Recreation Department.
