We all carry a variety of landscapes with us, whether those are places we’ve lived in all our lives and still call home, or places stolen, lost, or left behind as immigrants and refugees. At a time in which our connection to land is more vital than ever before, this short course will draw from diverse texts on place as we write into the lands we carry with us. This course welcomes writers working in any genre.
This is an interactive online class using the Zoom web platform.
