ENVS 80.02 Writing Our Way Home: The Writing that Sustains Us

This will be an intensive creative writing seminar and workshop in creative nonfiction, focusing on memory as source and landscape as setting. Students will explore the notion of place, not only as a physical construct but as an idea. The work of Helene Cixous, George Orwell, Brenda Ueland, and John Berger will serve as texts. The form of the essay will be discussed through the writings of Joan Didion, David Foster Wallace, Anne Carson, Sherman Alexie, and others. Throughout the quarter, students will immerse themselves in both the art of storytelling and the practice of writing, culminating in "a natural autobiography," a long essay that illuminates their own sense of place.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
