As we enjoy the beauty of spring, it’s hard not to be drawn to the wonders of nature. From the chirping of birds to the vibrant colours of blooming flowers, there’s something special about being outside and immersing oneself in the natural world. And what better way to do that than through a nature writing course?
In my Nature and Place Writing course, you’ll learn how to observe, connect with, and write about the natural world in a way that resonates with readers. We’ll explore different styles of nature writing, from personal essays to travel writing, and examine the works of other great nature writers from contemporary to classic.
