Mark Spragg leads Yellowstone writing course

Wyoming novelist Mark Spragg will lead a Yellowstone Association field course, “Writing Inspired by Landscape,” August 31-Sept. 3, at Lamar Buffalo Ranch in YNP. Rates: $325 (member’s fee $315).

Description from web site:

Immerse your writing in the inspiration of Yellowstone’s mountains and valleys. Explore how this wild landscape can determine pacing, dialogue, tone and action. You’ll pay special attention to maintaining a balance between description and narrative pacing. Develop these effects through outdoor writing exercises and sharing your writing with other participants. Whether you write fiction or nonfiction, you’ll come away with an understanding of the landscape of character.

Lodging at the Lamar Valley Buffalo Ranch is recommended for this course. You can book your cabin when you register.

Start: August 31 at 7 p.m. End: September 3 at 4 p.m.
