Learn and practice Earthy ways for engaging your writing process and feeding the content of your written work.
Come to understand how the natural world and ecology can be used as tools, antidotes (especially for writer’s block), and inspiration for your writing and your life.
Specifically, students will be:
given foundational information about the nature/creativity connection
guided through a sampling of free-writes and practices
guided through general ways to incorporate nature into their writing projects and creative process, coming to understand the role and benefit of such
given an opportunity to receive feedback about how to implement these practices specifically in relation to their own projects or creative impasses
This class is appropriate for all authors and aspiring writers; the practices can be effective regardless of genre. Be sure to bring to class a few pens, a stack of paper (preferably unlined), as well as an open-heart and open mind. Together, the students and instructor will create a nurturing and nourishing creative environment so that everyone can flourish.
