(GW) Introduction to Creative Non-Fiction
Prerequisite: ENC 1101 and LIT 2000 or ENG 2012
In this course we will examine the narrative possibilities of creative nonfiction. We will explore structure, technique and authorial presence in representative works of established sub-genres, including literary journalism, travel writing, memoir, and the personal essay, as well as more experimental forms like the lyric essay and collage. Students will develop skills and techniques necessary for the productive critique of their own and one another's writing and for the in-depth work of successful revision. Gordon Rule English credit.
