Cooper Street Workshop: Writing the Natural World

What would a novel written by a cloud look like? What about a poem written by a snail? And how can our understanding of these questions change the way we human animals create works of creative writing? Reading works from writers like Robin Wall Kimmerer, Anna Tsing, and Robert Macfarlane, this workshop will explore the role of the natural world in literature, and of literature in the natural world. Using observation and prompts, participants will practice de-centering the human perspective and using the natural world as a north star in creative work. Writers from all backgrounds and all genres are encouraged to join this generative workshop, timed to coincide with the arrival of spring. Learn more.

Admission: $60 general, $10 for Camden residents. Register to attend.
