Creative Nonfiction II [Gail Folkins]
This class will build on craft learned in Creative Nonfiction I with a focus on structure and form. The class is appropriate for those familiar with creative nonfiction and interested in shaping essays in a variety of ways. We will investigate both traditional and nontraditional forms, including memoir, the lyric/segmented essay, and the hermit crab essay, as well as the role of research in creative nonfiction. Students can expect weekly readings, exercises, and workshops with significant instructor feedback.
