Australian writer to speak on environmental writing April 5-6

Apr 1st, 2011 | By | Category: Arts & Entertainment, March 31

Environmental writing is the topic of two presentations by Australian writer Mark Tredinnick April 5 and 6.

English will sponsor the first lecture at 3:30 p.m. April 5 in Bailey Library, 228 Andrews Hall. The talk, “The Craft of Environmental Writing,” will be of particular interest to creative writing students.

The Plains Humanities Alliance will sponsor the second lecture at 3 p.m. April 6 in the Great Plains Art Museum, Hewit Place. The lecture, “From the Blue Plateau to the Great Plains: Sensing Place in Environmental Writing,” will focus on issues involving the relationship between local “sense of place” literature and issues of global environmental awareness.

Both presentations are free and open to the public. Tredinnick, who is on a reading tour of the United States and Canada this spring, will also give talks and readings in several UNL classes.
