Writing About Nature [Gail Folkins]
This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.
Introductory/Intermediate | Using the techniques of literary journalism, we’ll read and write essays with a nature and environmental focus, taking cues from writers such as Pam Houston, Ana Maria Spagna, Rick Bass, and Louise Erdrich. Through reading, discussions, and workshops, we’ll discuss best practices and research methods, from in the field to interviews. Every writer will compose two pieces — one personal piece and one longer essay integrating research. We will also discuss publication.
