PW 6005 - Creative Nonfiction


In this course we will explore the genre(s) of Creative Nonfiction in which people write creatively about their own experiences, about the experiences of others, and about the world around them.  Typically Creative Nonfiction genres employ standard aspects of craft found in most fiction, but Creative Nonfiction includes autobiography and memoir, travel writing, research-based personal essays, and, more recently, blogs and websites.  We’ll read a number of examples of Creative Nonfiction, and then students will focus their efforts in this course on the writing of their own Creative Nonfiction narrative.  (5 credits)
