Writing for Animals is a four-week writing program designed to help writers become more effective advocates for animals. Using Writing for Animals as a text, we’ll examine the ways in which writers from myriad genres—fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and activist writing—handle the portrayal of animals in their work. The class sessions will include lectures and discussion as well as in-class writing so that all participants will be able to put into practice the tools they’ll be learning.
This program will be hosted live using Zoom. All you’ll need is a computer or smartphone and an internet connection. An hour before each class is scheduled to begin, you’ll receive an email with a link to join the class meeting via Zoom. If you have questions about remote learning, please feel free to contact us. for more information.
