Sex in the Woods: How to Write the Kind of Nature Writing You Want to Read

Forget your grandmother's bird book. This class is for people who think the natural world is as lusty and complicated as a telenovela. We'll draw from natural history, ethnobotany, and folklore as we write about the species that surround us. You’ll finish the class with a collection of written portraits on different plants, bugs, animals (you take your pick) and new tricks for making your readers weirdly excited about lichen and wolverines. 

Instructor: Kristina Johnson

Dates: Tuesdays, Oct. 11, 18, & 25, Nov. 1, 15, & 22

Time: 6-8 PM

Location: TBD

Short Story Workshop With Brian Buckbee

The accomplished short story writer Lorrie Moore said that novels are like a marriage, but short stories are like a love affair. Raymond Carver said that short stories can transform the "commonplace" into things of "startling power." But there's even more! The invisible structure upon which the short story is draped is the same invisible structure that holds up our own lives. In this 6-week workshop, we will use our own stories as the vehicle for conversation about these tiny machines, how they work, how to make them, and--perhaps most importantly--why we make them.

Dates: Tuesdays, Sep. 13, 20, & 27, Oct. 4, 11, & 18
