This course, designed for students who have completed ENGL-2340 – Introduction to Creative Nonfiction, offers students an opportunity to continue to practice writing creative nonfiction in a guided workshop format. The primary emphasis in the course will be on the professor and students reading and providing constructive feedback on the students’ creative nonfiction writings. In addition, the students will read further examples of various types of creative nonfiction writing and complete writing exercises designed to allow them to work on the voice, structure, and technique of their writing. Throughout the semester, students will turn in short writing exercises and essays, culminating in either perfecting an essay to submit for possible publication or drafting a proposal for a book-length publication.
