Introduction to Literary Journalism [Gail Folkins]
This session explores creative nonfiction with an emphasis on literary journalism, one of the most popular and versatile writing genres today. Combining analysis with creativity, literary journalism blends reportage with a personal narrative or angle. We will explore this genre through a combination of discussion, a reading handout, and a writing exercise. You will leave the session with an essay topic along with research strategies. We will also discuss application of this genre in journals, magazines, newspapers, and online publications.
