Creative Nonfiction III [Anne Liu Kellor]
Together we will explore a wide range of essay and memoir forms, including Hermit Crab, research-based, braided, fragmented, and lyrical works. We will ask: what topics have you been avoiding, and how can experimentation help you access your most essential material? Each week, we will write and share from in-class prompts, as well as discuss craft and readings from authors such as Brenda Miller, Kelly Sundberg, Khadijah Queen, and Lily K. Hoang. During the latter weeks, we will workshop drafts with our peers in a respectful environment. Ultimately, we will push ourselves to look both inward and outward; to revise and take risks with our work; and to hold ourselves accountable to our goals.
