Are you passionate about nature writing or writing about the land? The annual Orion Environmental Writers Workshop is a unique opportunity to connect with Orion magazine writers and editors to understand more deeply the Orion perspective on the relationship between literature and the natural world. For the first time, this renowned workshop is cosponsored by the Omega Center for Sustainable Living.

Whether you write creative nonfiction, fiction, or poetry, this program is for writers who seek to become better advocates for the environment through their writing. The program features breakout writing sessions dedicated to each genre, faculty readings and lectures, student readings, and presentations on publishing. Each participant receives individualized attention, feedback, and a focused meeting with a faculty member to discuss manuscripts or projects.

Special guests include literary agents, publishers, and editors, who offer advice on book publishing, placing work in magazines and journals, and the environmental publishing world.
