Welcome to this week’s landscape.
Our look at BYGONE DAYS explores two well-written articles about topics that are current in today’s society – an article all about land borders https://lithub.com/the-oldest-the-longest-the-weirdest-a-brief-history-of-land-borders/and the migration of groups of people, in this case, an interesting discussion about Aunt Jemima’s Modern Descendant – \https://lithub.com/writing-the-story-of-aunt-jemimas-modern-descendant/
NOWADAYS finds us looking at paintings of snow as we are in the middle of winter here in the Northern Hemisphere. Take a moment and ponder or remember or wonder about what snow means to you. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/01/19/t-magazine/paintings-snow-winter-art.html?utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=WYM-01232021&utm_term=what_you_missed
And most important, for the future and our SCENIC OUTLOOK selection, the changes we have seen for the environment since this week’s transfer of power here in the United States. https://www.outsideonline.com/2420429/biden-first-day-environment-policies?utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=WYM-01232021&utm_term=what_you_missed

Want to reconnect with the outdoors, with nature after the holidays? Have you always wanted to write about nature, gardening, parks, trees, rivers, and the ocean? You need not be outside or at a national park to write about lands, waters, and critical environmental issues.
Join New Nature Writers for this virtual introduction to nature writing. In-session exercises will give you some practice, will be relaxing, and will energize and inspire you to get outside and be creative in the New Year.
Nature Writing as a genre has experienced a rise in popularity in the last few decades. There have always been writers who have addressed topics surrounding Nature, however, lately, their words have become more urgent.
You’ll be introduced to the definition of Nature Writing, authors who are considered pure Nature Writers and why this genre is necessary.
All are welcome to establish a new nature writing practice or to continue building a nature writing practice in a supportive environment. This session helps beginners as well as more experienced writers.
