Writing Assignments from Peter Lourie:

Writing a Watershed Journal

Find one character who lives in your watershed, someone who really interests you. Pick someone whose personality or career reflects something about the watershed itself. Describe that person and also describe the place where you first met him or her. See if you can capture some of this person's words in conversation. And then try to put it all together into a portrait that says something about the watershed, the person, and the times in which we live.
