Description

This is a creative non-fiction writing workshop in which we will think about creative nonfiction writing as cultural reportage. We will read a survey of cultural reportage—primarily personal essays, reviews, and opinion pieces—for textual, cultural, and aesthetic analysis to think about the ways that race, gender and sexuality intersect and operate thematically and politically in that writing. Our study of this writing will impact the main focus of this class: It is a writing workshop, in which each student will present her or his work for critique. Writing assignments will be expected of each student and possibly lead to the production of a class-produced blog or magazine at the end of the semester.
