Writing Like a Mountain
This writing seminar will climb mountains. Throughout the semester, we’ll hike through a range of texts that explore what the significance of mountains is to writers from many different traditions. We’ll write analytically about these texts and creatively about the mountains we live amid. Finally, we’ll foray to the mountains. Did you know Henry David Thoreau climbed Mt. Wantastiquet while visiting Brattleboro? Have you read fire lookout tower poetry while in a tower? We’ll make at least one group ascent of a mountain, adding our voices and footsteps to the peaks.
