I. Writing at the Edge (in-person):

In this time of ongoing ecological transformation, how do we write about our home places?

Salt marshes—tidal ecosystems at the border of land and sea—offer us a glimpse of what is possible at the edge and invite us to peer at what is held within fluid boundaries. Together, we’ll explore the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge, meeting the tides and the marsh grasses to ask: What can be learned from the beings who inhabit the edge?

Throughout the course, we'll read the words of Rachel Carson and consider her ways of inviting us into practices of seeing and being present with the living world. 

From the boundary between joy and sorrow, hope and fear, love and grief, this three-part nature writing workshop explores how nature writing can help us navigate vulnerable edges in a time of ecological transformation. 

Over the course of three sessions, we’ll each work to produce a personal nature writing essay.


At several locations within the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge, between Scarborough and Wells, Maine.
