Every environmental field includes writing! In this introductory course you will explore writing about place, your own experience, personal essay, report, technical, publicity and informational or interpretive writing. You will receive valuable feedback from your fellow writers. Past students have published in the college newspaper, the Economist, and one published a novel. No experience is necessary, and writers with experience are welcome. This course satisfies major and certificate requirements.
