Creative Non-Fiction: Introduction

Creative Nonfiction is an exciting form that embraces several sub-forms. This course explores memoir, the personal essay, the lyric essay, and narrative journalism. Get to know yourself as a writer through intensive engagement with assigned readings, peer work, embodied creative exercises, prompts that draw from fiction, poetry and theatre, and lively craft discussions. Explore some big questions about the nature of “truth”, memory, history, the imagination, and the social, political, cultural, and even spiritual role of memoir. Strengthen your techniques in telling the stories that make and/or provoke us; and generate some honest, compelling, and well-crafted writing.
