Online Creative Nonfiction Workshop with Michael Kleber-Diggs

October 17, 2022 - December 5, 2022


The course: The Self in Nature
In this class, we’ll spend time examining different approaches to nature writing. We’ll look at how we see nature in ourselves and how we can see ourselves in nature. The class will be oriented toward creative nonfiction but will include consideration of poetry, and largely focus on generative work.

The Instructor: Michael Kleber-Diggs is a poet, essayist, literary critic, and arts educator. His debut poetry collection, Worldly Things, won the 2021 Max Ritvo Poetry Prize from Milkweed Editions.. Michael’s essays have been anthologized in There’s a Revolution Outside My Love: Letters from a Crisis, the forthcoming A Darker Wilderness: Black Nature Writing from Soil to Stars, and elsewhere. Michael is married to Karen Kleber-Diggs, a tropical horticulturist and orchid specialist. Karen and Michael have a daughter who is pursuing a BFA in Dance Performance at SUNY Purchase.
