Introduction to Writing Creative Non-Fiction
Saturday and Sunday 10 am - 4 pm, two weekends
Indicative maximum class size: 15
Courses that explore creative forms of non-fiction are few and far between.
However, it’s one of the most up-and-coming forms of writing in contemporary literature and some of the most talked-about books from the last few years have been works of creative non-fiction: The Outrun, The Lonely City, The Last Act of Love, So Sad Today, The Argonauts, White Girls, Between The World And Me, Men Explain Things To Me and more.
This course will act as an introduction, focussing on the different forms of non-fiction, such as life writing, place writing, memoir, personal essays, lyric essays, travel writing and literary journalism.
