Nature and Adventure Writing [Nicholas O’Connell]

All Levels | A journalist once asked George Mallory, “Why do you climb?” He responded, “Because it’s there.” Many writers, too, have sought to explain why they climb, paddle, hike, ski, and engage in challenging and sometimes risky outdoor adventures. This class will address this question by demonstration, showing how to bring readers along for the ride using in medias res openings, dramatic scenes, and other techniques to recreate the thrill of encountering the wild heart of the natural world.
