How do we make meaning of the world around us—from our private, everyday lives to the social and cultural trends that surround us? Delving into memoir and creative nonfiction, this course will give you the tools to write complex, thoughtful, and eloquent essays on the questions that excite you. We will venture well beyond the skills covered in English 125 and 225, concentrating on crafting nuanced, emotionally resonant pieces in a broad range of styles and tones. We’ll also draw craft lessons from a wide variety of published essays and conduct regular workshops to develop lasting revision habits.

This course welcomes online only students
