Join Lynn Buckle, who currently represents Ireland as a UNESCO City of Literature Virtual Writer in Residence 2021 at the UK’s National Centre for Writing, for an innovative six-week course on nature, eco, and climate writing.
Does your work encompass forms of nature writing? Whether you write fiction or non-fiction, poetry, essays, or memoir, you could be part of a growing international Climate Writers movement. This introduction to Climate Writing blends taught facilitation, workshopping your writing, and discussions of published literature, and will appeal to authors of all genres interested in reading and writing about change in the Anthropocene.
It is hoped that this inspirational nature writing course will lead to the formation of Ireland’s first ever Climate Writers’ group.
