Creative Writing Workshop

Martin Hall, MHL 1.17, 12.30-2pm

This workshop will examine the different ways that nature can inspire us and our writing. From direct inspiration for poetry and prose to writing that physically and geographically maps its location, there will be plenty happening during this session. You’ll work outside, embarking on your own personal journey to find nature and to map or explore it through your own writing. You’ll be inspired by elements of nature found right here on campus and you’ll learn how to incorporate these into your work. Bring yourself and be prepared to connect closely with our immediate surroundings…
