A new course offering at the University of North Carolina approaches the topic of the changing Carolina coastline in a different way, through a mix of marine sciences and creative writing. UNC professors Bland Simpson and Brent McKee seek to inspire a new generation of writers to discuss coastal issues and young scientists to effectively communicate their research. In addition to reading scientific articles and creative fiction, the course also includes excursions to explore the North Carolina coast firsthand.
