In this course students are introduced to the fourth genre of writing, creative nonfiction. Students learn to incorporate the techniques of fiction such as scenes, dialog, descriptions and conflict/resolution into original pieces of nonfiction. Drawing on course readings for essay models and idea development, students produce creative nonfiction works such as the personal essay, the memoir, nature and science writing and literary journalism. Peer review and instructor feedback constitute a significant component of the course. Prerequisite: ENGL110XM or ENGL110M. (Fulfills English or Humanities requirement)
