Primary Instructor:

In this class we will take a serious leap from where you left off in ENGLISH 125 and 225. In those classes you looked at the basics of essay writing; in this class we will read, write and discuss the complex essay categories of creative non-fiction and memoir. Creative non-fiction — once called the New Journalism — encompasses some of the most radical, personal and interesting writing being done in America today. We will look very carefully at structure, point of view, tone, and use of dialogue. Each week you will read essays by writers like Joan Didion, Henry Louis Gates, David Sedaris, and many others.
