This is a creative nonfiction writing workshop with a heavy emphasis on literature. Great readers have an enhanced opportunity to become great writers. We will explore creative nonfiction by reading some of the most compelling practitioners of this form, and, when applicable, we will incorporate elements of their craft and style techniques into our own writing. In addition to compiling a portfolio, we will also examine the socio-political issues raised in the required texts.
