Friday Free Write with Holly Lyn Walrath
Turning to Science for Inspiration

(registration not required - join when it's time)

Science writing uses fact to inform and delight the reader. From geography to nature studies to space—science poems, stories, and essays dive into a wide variety of topics. As Jane Hirshfield says: “The work of a poet and the work of a scientist share many things. Both are investigations, both set out to answer a question that has not been framed in exactly this way before. The questions of poetry are not frameable by any other form of thinking than that of poetry, just as the questions of science cannot be framed without the techniques, ethics, and instruments of science.” In this workshop, we’ll discover ways to get inspired by science and write based on our wonderful world.
