The Environmental Storytelling Studio is a writing course for scholars, postdocs, faculty, and graduate students in the environmental sciences, social sciences, and humanities who want to marry scholarship with literary storytelling to engage a broad audience for their work.

Hosted by The Institute at Brown for Environment and Society, the studio is part skills workshop, part immersion in the genre of environmental storytelling, and part introduction to publishing. The goal is to diversify the stories we draw on to understand our environments, from who tells them to who reads them. The week-long intensive features writing classes, one-on-one meetings with our instructors, and guest talks from environmental writers, book and magazine editors, and literary agents.
