Are you seeking creative ways to reflect on your conservation experience? Want to enhance your overall writing skills? Interested in learning about creative nonfiction writing?

Strong writing skills are beneficial if you work in conservation or any industry! Join us for our upcoming workshops facilitated by professional writing instructor Kati Lewis.

Creative Nonfiction Writing Basics (Dec. 1st)

Creative nonfiction (memoirs, profiles, lyric essays, and more) has been used throughout history to shape cultural identities, open minds, encourage social action, and offer insider views into the writer’s world. Memoirs and other forms of creative nonfiction have the power to take readers inside your experiences to learn about and empathize with the histories, triumphs, struggles, and desires that shape the collective human experience via a personal, intimate lens. We’ll learn about and try out a few forms and elements of creative nonfiction to discover how to write stories about our world and lives.

No registration necessary – just hop on the Zoom link for the event!

Professional Writing (Dec. 8th)

Professional writing often has a bad reputation for being mundane and overly prescriptive. We’ll take what we learned about creative nonfiction writing from the “Creative Nonfiction Writing Basics” workshop and apply those skills to writing about ourselves and our work in professional contexts, genres, and formats.
