Through group discussion of student work, plus that of published authors, writers in this workshop examine the art and craft of creative nonfiction, and learn to use a full range of literary techniques to tell a compelling nonfiction story. Topics such as the use of dialogue, the creation of scene, attention to style and how to craft structure from true events will be discussed. Participants also spend time talking about the particular responsibilities that come with writing creative nonfiction. In-class writing prompts are used to inspire and motivate students to produce new work.
This workshop is open to writers working on memoir and personal essays.
