An online workshop on writing about the natural world, landscape and place that will offer writers the opportunity to craft their skills in evoking settings, imagined, remembered or lost. Long before we had maps we had stories through which we knew our place in the world and could project our fears, loves and memories. Taking inspiration from examples of nature writing the class will work on exercises that will demonstrate how landscape can elevate works of poetry, fiction and memoir.
