WRIT 140 SC - Creative Nonfiction
This workshop-based course focuses on creative nonfiction, defined as prose focusing on actual events or circumstances in the author's experience depicted using the techniques of creative genres (fiction, poetry, drama). Subfields of the genre include literary or lyric essays, memoir, and literary journalism. We will read examples of the genre from highly regarded practitioners as well as more theoretical work, and we will talk about the ethics and formal conventions of working in each area. Assignments will include writing in each area of this genre and critical responses to the work of others (both published work and that of peers).
