Eight graduate students in the MFA program for Creative Writing and Environment will present their fieldwork experiences and read creative work inspired by those experiences.
I will be presenting on my summer 2013 writing residency at the Iowa Lakeside Laboratory. I will read an excerpt from “CLAMPology,” an essay I wrote in appreciation for the community volunteers who do all of the water sampling for CLAMP, the Cooperative Lakes Area Monitoring Program, an initiative coordinated by Lakeside in partnership with the State Hygienic Laboratory at the University of Iowa.
