Get Out to Go In

“I could create a whole novel going from one end of town to another,” George Sand said. In this class, we’ll discuss work by Dao Strom, Rebecca Solnit, Robin Wall Kimmerer, Safiya Sinclair and Robert Macfarlane that is grounded in detail and observation. Then we’ll take short walks to draw sensory inspiration from physical experience and generate new material based on worlds we have observed—and the emotions, memories and feelings that stir as a result of moving our bodies.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
