Primary Instructor:

In this course, we will explore the genre known as Creative Nonfiction: nonfiction prose that is reflective, investigative, and analytical and borrows such rhetorical devices of characterization, scene, theme, setting, lyricism, and metaphor from fiction and poetry. We will examine the work of various authors writing in this genre so that we may employ their techniques and strategies in our own work. We will work to produce clear, sustained nonfiction essays that combine the rigor of sophisticated, fact-based scholarly writing with the beauty, elegance, and imagination of literature. You should expect to produce essays in this class that are more sophisticated and complex, both in content and in length, than in work produced in lower-level writing courses.

Requirements include two major essays, weekly responses to readings, peer critiques, and workshopping. You will be required to read and discuss assigned work by published authors, participate in in-class exercises and discussions, and thoughtfully and thoroughly critique the work of your peers.
