The Art of Science and Nature Writing
Instructor: Amy Wright (Austin Peay University)
In this workshop, we’ll look at how literary and artistic devices are being used to awaken the public imagination. We will also practice some writing exercises that invoke the power of a great story and popularize learning about science and nature. Texts will include excerpts from Margaret Renkl’s Late Migrations and J. Drew Lanham’s ”Nine Rules for the Black Birdwatcher” from Orion. Participants will produce one list essay and one reflective personal piece.
