Creative Nonfiction 1

“True Stories Told Well,” is the definition given by Lee Gutkind, the founder and publisher of Creative Nonfiction Magazine of the 4th genre known as Creative Nonfiction. Whether it be a memoir, the personal essay, or a literary journalistic article in The New Yorker, the truth can be told in a compelling way that keeps the reader engaged. In this class, we will move toward uncovering the true stories about ourselves and the world and telling them well. We will learn, through published texts and writing exercises and assignments, how creative nonfiction writers include vivid characterization, narrative structure, dialogue, imagery, and voice to a wide range of stories, including memoir, personal essays, profile pieces, travelogues, literary journalism, and more. Each member of the class will have multiple opportunities to submit creative work for review/workshop with constructive and supportive feedback.
