Environment as Inspiration:
Observing Landscapes, Bookscapes, Mindscapes with author Emily Sinclair
Saturday, July 7th, 10:00 am to 3:30 pm
Annie Dillard wrote, “Seeing is of course very much a matter of verbalization.” In this daylong class intended for non-fiction and fiction writers of all levels, we’ll explore how observing and writing about our surroundings — whether the natural world, the local coffee shop, or more imaginative environments, like the pages of a favorite book — enrich and deepen our work.
Our day together will be spent writing, reading, and discussing our own work and that of published writers, with the goal of drawing inspiration from the physical world around us. Writers will leave with new ways of seeing and understanding place.
The workshop fee is $50, plus a $3.03 ticketing fee. More details and directions will follow. Feel free to send any questions to jeff@landlibrary.org

Returning to Buffalo Peaks Ranch after very popular 2017 & 2018 poetry workshops, Jodie Hollander and attendees will discuss several aspects of writing and poetry including structure, development, and the creative process. Come prepared to write your own poetry, and explore questions with an internationally published poet.
Jodie Hollander studied poetry in England, and her poems have appeared in journals such as The Poetry Review, PN Review, The Dark Horse, and Verse Daily. Her debut book, The Humane Society, was published in 2012, and her most recent collection, My Dark Horses was published by Liverpool University Press.
