This is an introductory creative nonfiction workshop with a heavy focus on literature. Great reading encourages great writing. We will be learning about he craft of creative nonfiction by largely focusing own our own lives and the lives of individuals with whom we are familiar. We will also be reading some of the most effective practitioners of creative nonfiction and, when applicable, applying their techniques to our own writing. Lastly, we will be learning how to provide effective feedback to our peers during the workshop portion of class.
