How do you go from "this thing that happened" to a compelling piece of creative non-fiction?
In this introductory course, you will explore the various forms of creative non-fiction and the tools you need to write them effectively. Learn how to use research, interviews and your own memories to generate material, and then shape that material into a compelling piece of prose. Alongside these essential elements of the writers' toolbox, we will delve into the ethical implications of writing in the non-fiction genre, including the challenges that go with sharing personal stories and a writer's responsibility to the truth.
This course includes plenty of hands-on writing exercises to keep your pen moving, the opportunity to give and receive feedback on works in progress, and a reading list to keep you inspired long after the course is over.
It happened. We can help you write about it.
