What topics will I study?

  • Week 1 – Nature and Natural Settings. How we define nature and how the setting of a scene or story may affect reader interpretation.
  • Week 2 – The Seasons. To think about how the examination of seasons in writing might apply to more than just the change in scenery. To think in terms of emotional response and metaphorical detail.
  • Week 3 – Nature as Other. Exploration of nature as foreign, to consider development of tone and style. You will think about how you examine the world around you and as a tool in writing how it can add different layers to your expression.
