Writing Nature [John Farnsworth]
All Levels | In this class, we’ll take an exploratory approach to both environmental writing and nature writing while developing skills to evoke place and describe the natural world. During the first half of the course, various approaches to nature writing will be investigated as we develop the craft of observation and description. We will also consider eco-critical concerns and discuss contemporary articles that are exemplary of craft. The second half of the course will take the form of a traditional writing workshop where students hone their nature-writing skills.
