This winter and spring, Orion will host several Online Environmental Writers’ Workshops in poetry and nonfiction. This unique opportunity lets you maintain social distance, while improving your writing skills from home. Connect with us for six sessions with an experienced instructor and writer. Learn more about environmental writing, and renew, illuminate, and deepen your relationship with nature and place.

Conducted over Zoom (or similar platform) and limited to twelve participants, the workshops will feature a combination of generative exercises, craft talks, readings, special guest appearances, and workshopping of student manuscripts. In addition to the six, three-hour sessions, you will have an opportunity to meet in a short one-on-one or small group session with your instructor for a more detailed conversation about your work. The application window for winter courses is December 10-31. Spring 2021 course application dates are TBA. Please check back as we will be adding new courses in the weeks to come.
