Incorporating Research and Data into Nonfiction

All levels | During this workshop, students with experience in creative nonfiction will further explore the genre by reading work that incorporates research, data, and other sources. Students will write and share their work while discussing texts. We will also discuss research methods and resources, citations, and how to add quantitative data to stories in compelling ways. Class work will include discussing reading (e.g., John McPhee, Amy Leach, Ta-Nehisi Coates), and producing a creative portfolio. Students will produce several medium-length essays culminating in a final long-form piece of writing incorporating research.
