Online Class | Creative Nonfiction I [Beth Slattery]

VIDEO: This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom).

What’s the best way to tell the nonfiction story you want to tell? Using generative writing, reading, and an introduction to the workshop model, we will investigate our own personal stories as we look at examples of the form, including memoir, personal essay, and literary journalism. We will discuss work by Jo Ann Beard, Truman Capote, Jamaica Kincaid, Alice Walker, and more. Students will generate 15-20 pages, which will be shared in workshop and receive extensive instructor feedback.

The teacher of this course will be adapting curriculum to offer an online option should preventative measures against coronavirus, such as social distancing, prevent the class from being in-person. We are in uncertain times, but want to make the experience accessible and worthwhile, and are planning for that in advance!
