About this course:

Designed for those who have already begun to explore memoir or other narrative nonfiction genres, this workshop guides you to take your skills to the next level by focusing on a collection of essays, a single project, or other types of nonfiction prose; works-in-progress are welcome. Every week, you read several short, stylistically adventurous pieces to expand your repertoire and post a new installment of your own project for feedback from your instructor and peers. The goal is to create two new essay-length works of creative nonfiction and polish your skills for publication.
