What you can learn.

  • Draw upon fact-based information to enrich your creative works
  • Develop a plan for further development of works-in-progress

About this course:

Every writer is an expert in something—in fact, most of us know far more than we realize about the topics that inspire us. Whether it’s a criminal court case, the meat of your specialized day job, the history of violin-making in Prussia, the ins and outs of dental surgery, the subject of your master’s thesis, or simply the fine details of your own lived existence, fact-based material is the backbone of art. Everything we create and imagine draws upon the real world. By the end of the course, you will have completed one short creative project and a longer work that incorporate your found or tacit knowledge, as well as a concrete plan for further development of the longer piece.
