In this course, we will write and experiment with a variety of nonfiction forms, including flash nonfiction, visual or graphic narratives, the personal essay, the lyric essay, and more. We will read and discuss published essays, examining the techniques these writers employ in order to craft our own compelling narratives. Students in this course will read and discuss nonfiction texts, complete writing exercises and short essay assignments, and participate in peer workshops. Our class will also engage with the campus writing community by attending a public reading.
