ENGL 263: Crafts of Writing: Creative Nonfiction

Do you like it when true things happen? Would you like to take those true things and make them sound truer than true? Would you like to use words while doing that? In this course, students will write an evocation, a piece of long-form narrative journalism, and a personal essay. Class time will be spent on live writing assignments, giving and receiving feedback, learning writing and research techniques, and having discussions about things that seem trivial right up until the moment that their ultimate significance is revealed.
