Environmental Writing: Inspire, Observe, Inhabit

Join award-winning authors Wendy Call, Craig Lesley, and Ana Maria Spagna as they lead classroom and field-based sessions. They bring years of experience as writers, researchers, and teachers. Each is an attentive observer who weaves together history, science, and field time into well-crafted, thought-provoking writing about the natural and cultural world. Plus, with Craig we have the insights of a novelist, who is sure to give everyone a new and captivating perspective on the environment and how to weave into one’s writing.
