Michael Hettich will lead a six-week workshop on environmental writing as part of FCLA's Summer 2009 Creative Writing Courses, which offers a variety of classes taught by renown writers.

Tuesdays, June 2 - July 7
Creative Writing Course: Writing Earth—An Intro to Environmental Writing with Michael Hettich

6:30 - 8:30 p.m. | Miami Dade College, Wolfson Campus
$125 (Current MDC faculty and credit students: $100)

This six-week workshop covers writing and discussing poems, stories and personal essays that take the natural world as the subject matter. In addition, it will incorporate various writing exercises designed to help students develop their abilities to write in organic forms and think in ways that attempt to capture something of the “inner life” of nature. The class will also examine examples of great nature writing to extend and deepen the conception of the genre’s possibilities.
