Wild/Nature: A Creative Writing Workshop
In this two-day creative writing experience we’ll take a “field notes” approach to writing vivid, engaged, ecologically infused texts in response to outer and inner wilds. We’ll look at inspiring texts that capture the energy, imagery and impact of creatures and places we call wild, and employ exercises, assignments and thought experiments to foster our sensitivity toward the natural world and our place in it. We will also look for language to describe the inner wilds that serve as sources for much of the writing we admire or want to do ourselves. Please bring a notebook and a lunch.
While this is a rigorous course designed to meet the needs of serious writers, We warmly welcome participants with a genuine interest in the topic and Holly is prepared to adapt the materials according to all abilities. While we will focus on poetry, this workshop serves the needs of those working in all genres, including visual and performing artists. Get in touch with Holly directly with any questions or concerns: firstname.lastname@example.org
