On/Of/For the Earth

All Levels | In this generative workshop, we will focus on ways our writing can be a potent call to protect the planet—whether we’re penning a letter to an elected official, drafting a personal essay, or writing a poem. Prompts and readings will guide participants into writing that serves as witness to the landscapes we love and will help us approach our work creatively and playfully, even when we are confronting the most challenging issues of our day.

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.
