Explore the multi-faceted genre of creative nonfiction, which encompasses writing about real events, from your personal past to the world at large. Write your own short pieces, transforming true stories into compelling literary works. Personal essay, memoir, travel and humor writing may be explored. There will be room for experimentation when it comes to other categories, forms and styles, as well. Review published examples, get craft instruction, and learn to bring techniques and skills of storytelling to the nonfiction page, including dialogue, character development, narrative arc, scene building, and telling details. Work with prompts, get reading suggestions, and enjoy in-class discussions.
