Intro to the Writing of Creative Non-Fiction

ENGLISH 222S.01

Our focus will be on the essay as we explore nonfiction genres such as the character study, the review, the memoir, travel and nature writing.  Over the course of the semester, students will write short creative exercises leading through workshops and revision to the production of three longer essays. Along the way, we will read and discuss selected examples of published nonfiction to help us develop techniques for creating our own.  No previous creative writing experience is required for this course.
