Molly’s experience qualifies her to speak on a wide variety of topics including leadership, risk management and assessment, wilderness medicine, the history of women climbers, the Wilderness Act and areas of the world like Myanmar, the Tibetan Plateau, Kyrgyzstan, the Arctic, the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem and Mt. Everest. Please contact her for additional information.
“No doubt about it—Molly Loomis gave us the most informative as well as entrancing presentation we’ve had in the last few years.” -Lawrence Millman, Vice-Chairman of the New England Chapter of the Explorers Club
“Molly Loomis is a masterful storyteller and it was a joy to organizers and audience alike to have her speak at TEDxPhoenixville. Her talk, “Lessons from the Land” was an engaging, lyrical and inspirational musing on profound loss and a self reclaimed. I could have listened to her all day and been all the more rejuvenated for it!” – Kirsten Van Vlandren, TEDxPhoenixville Organizer

Workshops and Teaching:
For many years, Molly’s classroom consisted of gravel bars, glaciers and sandstone domes. Today, she’s just as comfortable incorporating multi-media into her classes. A creative, engaging teacher with an experiential approach, Molly delights in working with writers of all ages. Recent workshops include: Redefining Wild—The Intersection of Conservation and Recreation; Finding the Story Within the Story; Homeground—Learning to Speak the Language of the Land; Writing the Outdoor Essay—An Introductory Workshop for English Language Learners. Molly is also available for editing and workshopping individual projects and has worked with a variety of genres. Please contact her for additional information.
