ENGL 385: Environmental Writing

This course focuses on creative environmental writing and the study of environmental literature across multiple genres.  It is designed for two distinct groups: those in the sciences hoping to deepen their understanding of environmental issues through creative writing and the study of environmental literature, and those in the humanities seeking to further their creative writing skills on the specific subject of the environment.  Course content will include the reading of topical literature that demonstrates a range of formal and aesthetic styles; workshop discussion of student works-in-progress; and writing assignments culminating in a portfolio or series of completed writings.
