NWRW 2401 - Introduction to Creative Nonfiction
This workshop is for serious beginners as well as more experienced writers who want to delve into the still-evolving genre of creative nonfiction, which includes personal essay, memoir, documentary, and literary journalism. Through in-class writing and weekly assignments, students develop the skills to build a narrative frame around real-life events and situations. Student work is read and discussed in class. Readings from both The Art of the Personal Essay: An Anthology from the Classical Era to the Present, edited by Phillip Lopate, and Vivian Gornick's The Situation and the Story guide our considerations of the choices made by James Baldwin, Joan Didion, Natalia Ginzburg, Walter Benjamin, and other masters.
