Many of us feel overwhelmed and helpless in the face of climate change. We mourn the myriad impacts to our earth and her inhabitants.
In this four-week series, we will read and discuss contemporary literature on the natural world and our place—as humans—within this delicate ecosystem. Participants are welcomed to respond in poetic, prose, or hybrid forms of writing. The goal of this course is to provide class participants a forum to express, through narrative, their concerns, emotions, and activist concepts.
Prior to Week #1, I will provide PDF packet of readings, followed by weekly writing prompts. Our workshop time will be divided between discussion of participants’ work and the readings. I will also provide individual written feedback on one submission per participant.
