In this course, we will engage with a variety of nonfiction prose forms, including the essay, memoir, and autobiography. Students will gain an understanding of the craft of nonfiction through reading, discussion, and practice. The course will include a number of writing exercises and move toward peer workshop, where students read and productively critique each other’s work. Projected outcomes include: the development of clear and precise writing skills, an understanding of the genre(s), development of critical thinking skills and self-reflection, and the ability to generate meaning through writing.
