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.
If the dates below do not work for you, check out Section I of this class.
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through the end of 2020.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
