ENG 204 Nature Writing
This course will introduce you to the literary genres of non-fiction, fiction, and poetry through writing that explores the natural world and our place in it. Through reading, discussion, writing and reflection, you will develop an understanding of how these works are crafted and how they illustrate and explore essential and universal issues that are relevant to our lives, from the ecological to the sublime.
You will also engage creatively with the writing process by composing original works modeled on those forms and approaches to nature writing that we are reading. You will have the opportunity to write journals, essays, travelogues, short fiction and poetry that has nature as a subject, theme or literary device.
