In this advanced creative nonfiction workshop, students will produce two original works of creative nonfiction, read selections from the genres of memoir, essay, and literary journalism, and write detailed critiques of each other’s work. The ultimate goal is to train students to practice high-level analysis of various genres pertaining to creative nonfiction, and to inspire students to write inventive prose while working within the bounds of fact and truth upon which creative nonfiction is premised.
