WRIT-241 Environmental Writing

In this hands-on course students will develop creative writing projects around specific, local, environmentally important/precarious sites. In doing so, students will perform both traditional academic (scientific/historical) and experiential (place-based/creative) research that evolves into works of poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, or cross-genre work.  In this course you will dwell in the space between and including environmental studies and creative writing, developing your own voice and vision as witness to environmental change and trauma. 4 SH.
