Nature Writing Workshop
Our focus in this workshop will be on producing essays that combine close observation of the natural world with personal narrative and reflection. Journal-keeping, the study of natural history, exercises in writing and drawing out of doors, and reading of such contemporary nature writers as Annie Dillard and Barry Lopez will help to inform both our discussions and the portfolios of finished work which members of the class produce. (Approval required; please apply at department office.) 3 hrs. lect.
