Special Event

Nature Writing and Story Arts

Course Overview

A chicken crosses the road. A leaf falls in the forest. How do you turn day-to-day events into an engaging narrative? How do you gather and share stories and then use those stories to express ideas in a readable and enjoyable format? Join Dr. Jon Turk, author of 35 books and dozens of magazine articles, to explore the art of creative writing. This workshop will focus on nature writing, but all narratives and all ideas are welcome. We also welcome both established writers and novices. If you have a manuscript you are working on, bring it and we will help tweak it toward publication. If you have not written previously, we will explore ways to deepen and enrich a walk in the forest by seeing the landscape through a writer and storyteller’s eyes.


Required Tools

  • Writing materials
  • Warm clothes--we will be spending quiet, slow moving time in Northern Minnesota in November, so please plan accordingly!
