Wildbranch 2013: Apply Today!

The Wildbranch Writing Workshop is the country’s foremost writing workshop for people interested in honing their ability to write honestly and powerfully about the natural world. This year, join Orion editor-in-chief H. Emerson Blake and writers Alison Deming and Robert Michael Pyle for a week of writing and conversation in the rolling hills of Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom.

Over the years, Wildbranch has served as a forum for conversation and community, but it’s also been a home to students and faculty who’ve gone on to produce beautiful writing about the natural world.

This spring, in fact, two books from former Wildbranch students have hit shelves: Kevin M. Bailey’s Billion-Dollar Fish: The Untold Story of Alaska Pollock and Julia Corbett’s Seven Summers, the story of a naturalist-turned-professor who flees city life to pursue a lifelong dream of building a cabin in the Wyoming woods.

Also of interest to prospective Wildbranch students will be Wildbranch: An Anthology of Nature, Environmental, and Place-based Writing, a collection of poetry and essays by more than fifty contributors associated with the Wildbranch Writing Workshops.

The application deadline for this year’s Workshop is May 10—apply today! Learn more and download the application form here.

See you in Vermont!
