Writing Place: Landscape, People & the Natural World
March 27 to April 30
Are you drawn to a certain place and long to write about it? Do you want to embed a sense of place into your creative writing?
Learn about and practice writing about place, a subgenre that includes any of the elements that make a specific place what it is. It can include layers of history, natural history, human culture, the spirit world, and the built environment to bring us to this present moment. We can be advocates, critics, or lovers of a place.
For many of us, specific places are connected to our spirituality and deeper self. And a sense of place can help us ground our writing on any topic. Through writing, we not only express ourselves but also discover more about our subject. By developing our craft, we can better understand and present our world and experiences.
Open to writers or aspiring writers of any level and genre. Participants will look at readings on craft and the work of other writers for inspiration, and then practice the writer’s toolkit of image, voice, language, structure, and more. Some exercises will provide the opportunity to write in plein air or at a specific site.
