Writing Workshop: Eco-Poetics

"Eco" means "house." Our larger house has come to be the whole global ecology, in detail. Students study and write poetry and prose, and conduct unclassifiable experiments and collaborations that tend to direct attention to surroundings, especially "nature." Course includes a wide range of authors, from Thoreau to Annie Dillard, Orpingalik the Intuit songster to Rachel Carson and Stephen Jay Gould, and Mba Shole to Gary Snyder. We try to discover and invent new ways of representing nature's rich variety in language. Prerequisite: COR110 and Co-requisite: WRI210.
