Becoming an Outdoor Writer – Spring 2023

Join us 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 not only includes magazine stories, but also 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, and 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.

Bill Carman is an active hunting and fishing guide. He has published four books and dozens of magazine articles. 

This class is suitable for all levels.
