In this context, students will undertake a series of exercises designed to develop their own writing and provide feedback to other students. They will examine some key works of environmental literature and ecopoetic literary theory, and cultural studies theory around psychogeography. Students will undertake field research as part of the course to develop a final sustained piece of writing in their chosen genre about environment or place.
