Becoming an Outdoor Writer – Spring 2021

Join us outside (following all applicable local health guidelines) at McConnell Springs Park to learn about the many forms of ‘outdoor writing’—from creative nonfiction (Steven Rinella), fiction (Ernest Hemingway), to the combination of both (Norman Maclean). This extensive market included magazine stories, of course—but it also includes book-length essays, novels, and even weekly newspaper columns. The outdoor industry adds $70 billion to the American economy, and the people spending that money enjoy reading about the object of their passion. This class will encourage open dialogue, sharing work, as well as writing experiences. Topics will include: choosing subjects, establishing your voice, opening lines, research, narrative, cliffhangers, format, illustrations,the markets, and getting published. For all levels.

Bill Carman is an active hunting and fishing guide and has published three books and dozens of magazine articles. His fourth book, Saving Noah-Love, Murder and Kentucky Politics, will be released in January.

Please note: This class may be canceled or postponed due to weather or local health guidelines this spring.
