Environ/Adventure Writing

Get Outdoors! Environmental and Adventure Writing in the Digital Age
In this course we will explore the environmental and adventure narrative. Equipped with laptop, camera, and audio and video recorders-the tools of today's writers- each student will undertake an investigation in the Middlebury area (anything from wind energy to local hunting), then sharpen their skills as writers, focusing on setting, character, and narrative thread. We will read from a wide selection of authors including Jack London, Joe Kane, Ernest Hemingway, Gretel Ehrlich, Peter Matthiessen, Robyn Davidson, and Jack Kerouac. Students will explore the line between fiction and nonfiction as they incorporate their own experience with interviews, photos, and audio and video files in their final written and digital projects. (Students will need a laptop, camera, and a small hard drive to house Final Cut Pro files for video editing.) (Not open to students who have taken INTD 1105) 3 hrs. lect./3 hrs. lab
