Writing Workshop: Wild/Nature
In this intensive creative writing workshop, we’ll take a “field notes” approach to writing vivid, ecologically engaged texts in response to the landscape around Thoreson Farm. We’ll employ experiments and strategies to deepen our sensitivity toward our environment, and read and discuss texts by Hirshfield, Hass, Basho, Kenyon, Dombrowski and others. By the end, you’ll have generated several new pieces of creative work. This rigorous course will satisfy needs of beginning and advanced writers; all that’s required is a genuine interest in the topic and a willingness to write. While our focus will be on poetry and creative non-fiction, writers and readers from every genre are welcome. Contact instructor directly with questions or concerns. Bring a notebook and lunch each day.
