Effective and engaging narrative writing depends (among other things) on a clear and effective expression of place. In this course, students will explore a range of approaches to writing about place, focusing on the field of nature writing, including a range of sub-genres, such as environmental writing, and science writing. During the course, students will also learn about the form of the non-fiction essay, also known as the lyric or personal essay. Students will learn the skills required to write a personal essay for publication, including how to engage productively and professionally with the editorial process.
