My reading will draw from material written while I was on a canoe trip into the Boundary Waters Wilderness Area in northern Minnesota. These pieces signify a change in my writing style and show the great growth that occurred over a few short weeks. This change occurred due to the professor’s observations and suggestions as well as to the atmosphere and varying degrees of wilderness we encountered on our trip. The experience created a newfound openmindedness of what writing can be. Not all of the pieces refer to the woods, but the experience of seclusion and experimental writing certainly created new types of thinking and writing.
