Nature Writing

Loading Events

Connect with the natural world as a reader and a writer, from the species level to the larger landscape of place. Participants will read and discuss contemporary nature writing, engage in nature-writing exercises and activities in class and on their own, and share and discuss samples of participant writing. Participants will acquire tools and skills to continue their nature-writing practice and to work toward finished manuscripts. Some class sessions may be held in outdoor locations in the DC area.
