A Walk in the Woods: Nature Writing
A combination of literature course and creative writing workshop, we will explore classic nature writing texts. As a group, we’ll discuss how and why writers portray the natural world and their own landscapes for broad audiences. We’ll also discuss books which may not, at first glance, follow the conventions of what we might think of as nature writing as a way to craft our own creative nonfiction. Readings will include selections from Susan Fenimore Cooper, Henry David Thoreau, and Walt Whitman among others. This study group is coordinated by Emelia Abbe, a Ph.D. candidate in UM’s Department of English.
