Creative Nonfiction I (ASYNCHRONOUS) Section II [Anne Liu Kellor]
This class will introduce you to the diverse styles of creative nonfiction, including memoir, personal essays, and lyric essays. Each week we will study craft elements such as scene, reflection, point of view, metaphor, and locating the heart of the story, as we discuss essays by authors such as Jesmyn Ward, Cheryl Strayed, and Ross Gay. We will also freewrite from weekly prompts and post our writing online, working our way toward drafting a final piece for instructor and peer feedback.
This class takes place online through our partners at Wet Ink, and sessions can be completed at your own pace throughout the week.
