The student writers at the Coastal Studies Center

Using the pastoral setting of the Coastal Studies Center on Orr’s Island as their backdrop, 12 students joined Sarah Braunstein for a recent writing workshop that focused on threatened and destroyed landscapes.

Braunstein, a novelist and writer of short stories and essays, is Bowdoin’s current Coastal Studies Scholar. She designed the Saturday workshop to encourage students to use fiction writing to imagine a world dealing with the effects of environmental destruction. Read the full story by Emily Weyrauch ’17.
