Creative Nonfiction II

This class is for those looking to build upon craft learned in Creative Nonfiction I or those already familiar with the basics of the genre including points of view, scene, reflection, and form. We will delve deeper into styles of creative nonfiction including memoir and personal essay forms. Students will consider more intensive readings and prompts, and workshop their own nonfiction pieces.

Tiered classes are designed to help you feel confident in progressing through your writing with the appropriate tools, skills, and an understanding of the diverse voices at work in each genre. You may self-select into classes based on where you feel comfortable in a particular genre, and you are welcome to take classes as many times as you would like. (If you have little to no experience in a workshop setting, we recommend starting at Tier I.)
