Mary Oliver and the Art of Observation in Nature

In this class we will introduce the poetry of acclaimed nature poet Mary Oliver and cover the essence of four different thematic techniques of observation which will greatly enhance our ability to write nature poetry spontaneously and regularly.

We will learn ways to efficiently apply some of the more essential poetic techniques necessary to write nature poetry. We will learn to both recognize and write themes of observation as experience, celebration, gratitude, and imagination. How we perceive nature is directly related to our ability to turn our observations to poetry. Our true class goal is to broaden our ability to comprehend and express our connection to the natural world, a practice proven to increase our overall well-being.
