Creative Nonfiction: You Can’t Make This Stuff Up
$990 / Week
Creative nonfiction is meant to amuse, as well as inform readers of true stories. From humorous to the deadly serious, nonfiction writers make connections with what’s happening in the world by accounts of history and personal experiences. In this course, we will look at methods of crafting essays and memoirs, along with acclaimed works of Malala Yousafzai, Dan Brown and others alike. Students will produce one close-to-completed work of creative nonfiction that is generated from classroom writing exercises and instruction. They will learn first-hand experience in using storytelling techniques commonly associated with fiction writing, including dialogue, point of view, conflict, character, scene and setting.
