In a world ever more divided and threatened by terrorism, racism, habitat destruction, pollution, climate change, hunger, and poverty, can the written word make any difference? Can literature foster a better world for future generations? Can stories save lands and waters and promote policies for a sustainable, equitable planet? Author Kristine Zeigler will explore how to turn your passions for people and special places into powerful fiction and nonfiction for social change. Zeigler describes her passion for the Eastern Sierra Mountains, and her journey to put together her book of ten short stories set in the Owens Valley.
This master class will give students tools to organize their research, set a writing schedule, interview experts, and produce a manuscript. In-class exercises will inspire and delight. We’ll tap into our life experiences to explore places we care about and issues that matter most to us as writers and human beings.
