We are Products of Our Environment; the Self in Nature Writing with Michael Kleber-Diggs (Virtual)

August 20 @ 12:00 am - 11:59 pm

Because we are part of nature and nature is a part of all of us, in this workshop, we'll explore ways that writing about nature is writing about ourselves. We consider what it means to be intentional in our consideration and exploration of the world around us.

Michael Kleber-Diggs is a poet, essayist, and literary critic. His debut poetry collection, Worldly Things (Milkweed Editions, 2021), won the Max Ritvo Poetry Prize. Among other places, Kleber-Diggs’ writing has appeared or is forthcoming in Poem-a-DayPoetry DailyPoetry NorthwestPotomac ReviewHunger MountainMemorious, and various anthologies. Since 2016, Michael has been an instructor with the Minnesota Prison Writing Workshop. He also teaches Creative Writing in Augsburg University’s low-res MFA program and at Saint Paul Conservatory for Performing Artists. He lives in Minneapolis.
