Join acclaimed creative writing teacher John Calderazzo, Emeritus Professor at Colorado State University, for a high-energy workshop designed to generate fresh writing in a variety of genres. This will be prompt-based and desert-inspired, so come ready to write! Participation is limited to the first 20 registrants.
John served as the guest judge of the 2017 Waterston Desert Writing Prize and will participate in “A Desert Conversation”, along with author and environmental activist Kathleen Dean Moore, as part of the awards ceremony. A former full-time freelance writer of essays, magazine and newspaper articles, Professor Calderazzo teaches nonfiction writing workshops and also helps scientists use storytelling to speak to the public. He’s the author of a how-to writing textbook, Writing from Scratch: Freelancing; a children’s science book, 101 Questions about Volcanoes; a creative nonfiction book, Rising Fire: Volcanoes and Our Inner Lives, and a poetry chapbook. He writes personal essays and memoir, and travels widely to write about nature, climate change, Buddhism, and the interrelationships of science and culture. His work has appeared in Best Nature Writing, Best Travel Adventure Stories, Georgia Review, Audubon, Orion, Witness, and many other magazines. He is a winner of a Best CSU Teacher award and a creative writing fellowship from the Colorado Council on the Arts.
