Description

A good creative nonfiction essay tells a truthful story in a compelling and vivid way. In this class you will have the opportunity to read and discuss exemplary creative nonfiction essays and craft essays on topics you choose. You will learn how to discover a compelling topic, pose an interesting question about that topic, choose a structure for your essay, and present your discoveries to your readers. You will also learn how to provide, receive, and implement feedback as a reader and writer. The most important skill you can bring with you to English 325 is embedded in the French verb at the root of the word “essay” – a commitment to try, to experiment, and to enjoy others’ experiments. All sections of English 325 focus on examining and practicing artistic and research-informed essay writing. The term essay refers to shorter works of composition employing stylistic devices from multiple genres of writing in order to develop a point of view aesthetically and intellectually. The course builds on skills from introductory writing courses (e.g., English 124, 125, and 225).
