Introduction to Creative Nonfiction

Location: UCB 104

Creative Nonfiction is one of the most popular genres of writing right now and encompasses many forms, including essay, journal article, research paper, memoir, poem, prose. The key to creative nonfiction is the use of literary techniques to tell nonfiction stories in a way that is dramatic and compelling. We will try several different techniques and styles in order to find the best way to tell our stories, to make them personal and to make them memorable.
