Nature Writing

Writers have long been inspired by their interactions with the natural world. While nature can be inhospitable, dangerous and downright terrifying, it is also ripe with opportunities for discovery, revelry and wonder. In this class we’ll celebrate and observe the natural world, see and hear what others have written about it and write new poems inspired by our experiences. Plan to read poems, create new work, and engage in readings and discussions.

Special Notes

  • Bring something to write with.
