A Nonfiction Writing Course
Nonfiction literature is surging in popularity and this trend shows no sign of slowing down. Memoir, personal essay, and narrative journalism respond to our collective desire for true stories that speak honestly to our world, to different cultures, to large questions and to the wide range of human experience. In this five-week course, we will read and discuss work written by a wide range of contemporary nonfiction writers including Aisha Sabatini Sloan, JoAnn Beard, Beth Alvarado, Lidia Yuknavitch, Paco Cantu and others. Together, we will consider craft and discuss how these writers utilize research and personal narrative to explore some of the most urgent issues of our time. Students will use prompts to generate writing both in and outside of the classroom and will have opportunities to share work and get feedback during class. Are you are curious about the craft of nonfiction writing? Do you want to engage with writing that asks big questions about our current times? Do you have stories that are begging you to be told? Please join us!
