Instructor: Laura Lampton Scott
For writers at all levels
Place-based writers are often steeped in their place’s landscape, paying close attention to the natural world of the place they write: Andrea Barrett, Jesmyn Ward, Willa Cather. We will consider the natural world as integral to setting, focusing on narratives that integrate the dirt of a place into story and character. We will find inspiration in the nature of the place we are, and the places we have been.
Laura Lampton Scott’s work has appeared in Michigan Quarterly Review, Tin House and the Guardian online, Electric Literature, Monkeybicycle, Okey-Panky, and No Tokens Journal. She has served as assistant and managing editor on books in the McSweeney’s Voice of Witness series, and she’s a MacDowell Colony fellow. Laura has taught fiction at the University of Montana, Literary Arts, and Hugo House in Seattle. She’s currently seeking publication for her first novel.
