The sky was….blue? Writing the Summer Landscape with Jonathan Sapers

Sunbury Shores Arts and Nature Centre 139 Water Street, ST. Andrews

How do you describe the summer? It’s almost impossible not to start with the temperature and the comparative brightness of the sun and if we are lucky enough to be in a place like St. Andrews, with the water, the trees, the birds and the whales. And can you really describe what happens in the summer – say summer love -- without framing it with summer details? As a result, describing what the sky was like in the summer in a short story or essay can become an exercise in rendering emotion or opinion through detail. In this course, we will experiment with describing our summer landscape in the creation of either short stories or essays based in St Andrews.
