Are you a nature lover or outdoor enthusiast? Do your prose and poetry have ecological connections? Are you an environmental scientist, academic, or activist hoping to communicate to wider audiences?
Sign up for our free virtual writing course from May 11–25 and learn directly from some of the best science and nature writers in North America today.
Presented with Pandemic University, WRITING IS YOUR NATURE is your field course for writing about the natural world.
Get better at translating scientific research into accessible stories with the help of The Narwhal’s investigative journalist Sharon Riley. Learn how to leverage your platform and influence for good with Governor General’s Literary Award nominee Chris Turner. And find out how to publish these stories (for money, of course) with Sarah Gilman, a writer for The Atlantic and Hakai.
The series of five masterclasses were designed for (and by) writers who want to craft sublime sentences that vividly capture the natural world and our connections to it. From honing your voice to putting your skills to work, WRITING IS YOUR NATURE will sharpen your non-fiction prose through the lens of nature, ecology and conservation.
