Writing Workshop with Naseem Jamnia and Andy Butter

April 20, 2019 @ 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM $5.00

Imagination Is More Important Than Knowledge: Cultivating a Sense of Wonder through Writing.

Though we now think of them as separate realms, artists have long drawn upon scientific knowledge for inspiration. In this workshop led by Andy Butter and Naseem Jamnia, participants will look at the scientific world (and beyond) through exercises in fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry. Together we will explore the possibilities afforded to us by the fields of ecology, neuroscience, and astronomy. This workshop is open to scientists and nonscientists alike – all are welcome.

This workshop is $5, please purchase your ticket in advance as seating is limited.

Contact Sophia at workshops@hollandreno.org with any questions.

Andy Butter grew up on the world’s largest lake in northern Minnesota and now resides in the high desert, studying poetry at the University of Nevada, Reno. His previous publications include Yes! Magazine, National Geographic Explorers Journal, and The Owen Wister Review.
