In the writing world, there are plenty of different realms to spark creativity and inspiration in. Nature writing is one such example, and it is actually one of my favourite ways to write; it provides an opportunity to truly delve into the artistic details of our beautiful planet, and I personally find myself able to write more freely and and lucidly when I am describing a nature scene.
If you’re like me and thoroughly enjoy nature writing, there is now a chance to sharpen your skills with the best of the best as your teachers, according to an article from The Good News Network by Andy Corbley.
“The pandemic has gone on so long, it spawned an entire online university—one that offers masterclasses on writing, podcasting, photography, reporting, and other literary topics.
“From May 11 through May 25, Pandemic University is offering an entirely free series of classes for writers looking to sharpen their skills in evoking the natural world.
“From poetry to reporting to pitching articles to journals, ‘Writing is Your Nature‘ features six notable conservationists and journalists, each hosting 60-minute classes that provide the writer with the skills needed to produce gripping content that speaks the language of the natural world in elegant and understandable ways.
“The live masterclasses are replayable and hosted on Zoom, and will include content for both professionals and beginners—with ample time for questions at the end of each session. Along with blending scientific accuracy and readability into prose, they’ll also cover writing in the environmental or conservation field as a career.
“Writing is Your Nature is sponsored by the Canadian-US conservation non-profit Yellowstone to Yukon, which looks to guarantee better protection of the lands in and between these two great wildernesses,” the article states.
