Landscape/Tension [Alexis Smith]

We’ll look at landscape in poetry and prose, discussing excerpts from writers such as Marilynne Robinson, Margaret Atwood, Carl Adamshick, Barry Lopez, and Deborah Digges. We’ll also discuss an excerpt from Triggering Town by Richard Hugo. This workshop will be discussion-heavy, with emphasis on how to write landscape with attention to arc and tension; however, we may have one or two writing exercises if time allows, so come with a notebook and writing implement.
