It might seem that fiction gets all the attention, but creative nonfiction is a vital and vibrant field that all writers should spend time exploring. It’s also the fastest-growing genre in the creative writing field. This four-week immersion is a tour of many creative nonfiction forms, including: personal essay, memoir, magazine writing, long-form journalism, narrative poetry, and more. Together, we’ll read and discuss the work of some of the strongest creative nonfiction writers in the field. We’ll discover how to use techniques common to fiction and poetry, such as the use of imagery, setting narrative scenes, physical description, and cultivating a voice. And, we’ll try our hands at each form. You’ll have the chance to share your work with others and gain encouraging instructor feedback. Note: This class meets 4 Tuesdays: January 7, 14, 21 & 28.
