Wild/Nature: Writing in the Natural World FULL

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

This is a generative writing workshop in which our reading and discussion of several so-called "nature" poems will provide examples and strategies that we can follow in our own creative writing. Come ready to experiment as we deepen our sensitivity toward the other-than-human-world by writing vivid, ecologically engaged texts that preserve some portion of the wild through their making, but also in the way this kind of writing invites attention and even advocacy, when read by others. (Bring your notebook.)
