This course is an exploration of three distinct styles of creative nonfiction through literary models, theory, and student writing, with an emphasis on developing personal style. Each module provides students with an opportunity to engage with a different aspect of creative nonfiction, discuss the readings with classmates, and practice the topic on their own with motivating prompts.
This course can be applied toward:
CO 150 (College Composition) or HONR 193 (Honors Seminar) and E 210 (Beginning Creative Writing) with a minimum grade of B or JTC 210 (Newswriting).
