This course focuses on travel and nature writing and explores the ways in which writers perceive the world around them and express their experiences in words. We examine theoretical issues, styles, formats and approaches within the genres of travel and nature writing, performing close readings of a range of texts for insights into style, techniques and tricks of the trade. Practical writing exercises will help students to improve their powers of observation and to turn their personal experiences into vivid, descriptive prose. There may even be the opportunity for a mini-field trip to gather inspiration and material for written exercises.
