Writing the Wild will explore the many ways in which we can express our experiences, thoughts and feelings about the natural world. Whether you are a naturalist, an outdoors enthusiast, an activist or just plain curious, this workshop aims to engage your unique voice in writing about our home places. Exercises, examples of powerful nature writing and group discussion of your writing, in whichever genre, will form the backbone of these classes.
