Nature and human nature: to vivify and vitalise

GENRE: Non-Fiction & Life Writing
Totleigh Barton

What is the role of the writer in an age of climate change and mass extinction? This course will focus on the natural world and its vitality, the politics of nature in the broadest sense, and the natural element of the human spirit. Its aim is to encourage writing about Nature which has a voice and a purpose and in which language is significant, subtle and alive. The course will include immersive time in the natural world, and much teaching outdoors. Writers of both fiction and non-fiction are welcome, and participants at all levels of experience.

Single room price: £760
Shared room price: £710

Grants are available to help with the course fee
