CRWR 3003 - Wild Places / City Spaces: Environmental Writing

North Terrace Campus - Semester 2 - 2017

This course will focus on creative writing in all genres, but particularly non-fiction and poetry, that engages with all forms of environments, from wildernesses to the urban. It will focus specifically on writing that pays special and close attention to the intersection of text and place, to environmental concerns, to ecopoetic theory and practice, and to theories of psychogeography. In this context, students will undertake a series of exercises designed to develop their own writing and provide feedback to other students. They will examine some key works of environmental literature and ecopoetic literary theory, and cultural studies theory around psychogeography. Students will undertake field research as part of the course to develop a final sustained piece of writing in their chosen genre about environment or place.
