Environmental Writing: Narrating the Natural World [Anna Clark]
All Levels | Our shared earth is rich with stories. This class explores ways of chronicling it, from fervent attention to species not our own to the largest questions of climate change and environmental justice. We’ll engage with writers such as John Steinbeck, Rachel Carson, Aldo Leopold, John McPhee, Robin Wall Kimmerer, Elizabeth Rush, Camille T. Dungy, and Carolyn Finney. We’ll consider how writing about “the environment” and “the city” are not separate practices. We’ll discuss precision, complexity, scope, empathy, testimony, and even humor. Participants will receive a Dropbox folder of environmental writing resources.
