How do I decide what to write about? What if my memory is flawed? How much research do I need to do? What details are the most important? What’s the best way to give and receive feedback to writers in a workshop setting?
This class invites you to explore the fundamentals of creative nonfiction, including setting, character, point of view and other elements. Class time will be spent writing with generative prompts, discussing various aspects and forms of creative nonfiction – including examples of memoir and personal essays – and establishing a writing practice. Participants will also gain experience giving and receiving feedback in a supportive environment and learning best practices for a successful workshop experience.
This class is designed for beginning writers, although more experienced writers may also benefit.
