Writing About Place

Use a sense of place to spark and shape your writ­ing. How does fil­ter­ing writ­ing through a par­tic­u­lar sense of place affect the work and what does writ­ing gain in the process? How have writ­ers expressed ideas about trav­el, or nat­ur­al and built envi­ron­ments? We will read and dis­cuss place-relat­ed writ­ing as well as par­tic­i­pate in writ­ing exer­cis­es. You will have an oppor­tu­ni­ty to have your work cri­tiqued by the group. While the empha­sis in this sem­i­nar will be on pro­duc­ing new work, par­tic­i­pants can work with the instruc­tor on revi­sions. Suit­able for emerg­ing writ­ers as well as more expe­ri­enced ones.
