ENG 111 - Creative Writing: Nonfiction


True stories, well told. Creative nonfiction is like jazz-a mix of flavors, ideas, techniques. Some are new; others as old as writing itself. We are story, essay, journal article, research paper, reported journalism, memoir, even poem; personal or not, or all of the above. In this course, we will read examples and tell our own stories as well as other people’s. We’ll operate in part as a studio devoted to writing; we’ll discuss what we read and explore craft and technique. We will workshop our own work. Students submit a final publication-ready portfolio. For Creative Writing minors, this course counts as one of the introductory courses.
