Katherine Hauswirth’s writing, focused on connection and contemplation inspired by the natural world, arises largely from long walks in Connecticut. She has been published in the Christian Science Monitor, Orion online, Connecticut Woodlands, etc. Katherine’s writing has been awarded with residencies at Trail Wood in Connecticut and Acadia National Park in Maine. “Beckoning the Mountain,” an essay in her book, won a first prize in the Soul-Making Keats Literary Competition. A native New Yorker, she is increasingly enamored of her adopted hometown, Deep River, Connecticut, where she lives with her husband and son.
The Book of Noticing: Collections and Connections on the Trail is a collection of essays that reflect on time in nature and what it adds to, and reveals about, our day-to-day existence as humans.
