Course Spotlight!

How do writers shape the nonfiction idea, image, fact, or story into a compelling work of literary art? In this advanced workshop we write, read, and discuss across the diverse subgenres of contemporary creative nonfiction, including flash nonfiction, the literary memoir, the lyric essay, the personal essay, literary reportage, the nonfiction short, and even graphic, live lit, borrowed, and hybrid forms. Participants read a wide array of nonfiction by writers at work today, try out a variety of forms and structures, go deeper into nonfiction craft elements, participate in writing workshops, and submit a substantive revision in the nonfiction form of their choosing.
