Creative Nonfiction III [Emily Rapp Black]
This class will be a mix of craft discussion/workshop. In the spirit of “no craft without context,” we will discuss issues of craft as represented in exemplary works of nonfiction (all free and provided before class). Each student will workshop one piece of writing, and the group is expected to be thorough, rigorous, and productive, adhering to workshop etiquette and protocols that we will discuss during our first session. We will not do freewrites or generative exercises, but instead working with the narrative clay that each writer presents, and helping the writer shape that piece to its highest level.
