CRWR 219-02 Creative Non-Fiction
Instructor: Sha'an Chilson
Course Description:
Have you ever read an article in Gourmet about the history of peach cobbler? Or a piece in Sports Illustrated about famous ball parks? Or an article in The New Yorker about a family living next to toxic waste? You were reading a piece of creative non-fiction. Creative non-fiction is the genre that walks the line between fiction and journalism. It creates stories and characters using the techniques of fiction, but it also provides background history and interviews using the techniques of journalism. Creative non-fiction is the genre that informs with journalism and storytelling -- with research and experience. This course will focus on the reading and writing of various styles of creative nonfiction. The goal of this class is for you to write well-crafted, engaging essays that use multiple ways of writing to create compelling reading. There will be no assigned subject matter, though the forms of essays will be assigned.
