Malheur Field Station Nature Writing Intensive

September 28 – October 1, 2023

The Writing Ranch and the High Desert Museum are offering a unique weekend nature writing intensive at the Malheur Field Station, located near Princeton, Oregon. Daily generative writing workshops, led by High Desert writer and OSU-Cascades MFA instructor Ellen Waterston, will be informed and complemented by morning field trips and evening discussions led by naturalist and High Desert Museum Curator of Wildlife Jon Nelson and noted archaeologist Dennis Jenkins, field school director for the Museum of Natural and Cultural History Museum/University of Oregon. Prompts will focus on returning both established and emerging poetry and prose writers to the page with renewed commitment and inspiration.

Cost: $675 per person, all-inclusive
