Writers on the Environment—& the Trail

August 9, 2015 @ EST 4:00 pm


OVERNIGHT: Sunday 4 pm-Tuesday 4 pm, August 9-11

Lace up your hiking boots and grab a pack, this class is taking writing and sketching to the trail. From the roots of nature writing, the branches of environmental writing spread like a leaf unfurled. You will explore the Finger Lakes Trail from Ontario County Park to the Gell Center on a two-day hike with plenty of time for learning about how writers have made a difference in the environmental movements as well as how writers use the natural world in genres like the essay, fiction, and poetry. Find your own sense of place, make new discoveries, and create your own works along the way. You will also learn about minimum impact camping and hiking. Everything provided—including a certified NYS Guide—just bring your own pack, sleeping bag, and personal gear, and of course a pen and something to write in.

NOTE: Drop off and pick up will be in the Naples area. Details will be shared after registration.
