Writing About the Environment [Gail Folkins]

All Levels. We will use the techniques of literary journalism to write about topics with a focus on nature and environment. We will take cues from Edward Abbey, Terry Tempest Williams, Rick Bass, and Louise Erdrich, who explore a connection between their lives and the environment, from personal to political. Through a combination of reading discussions and writing workshops, we will discuss best practices and research methods, from interviews to archives. Every writer will compose two pieces: one short personal piece and one longer essay integrating research. We will also discuss publication opportunities.
