Intermediate Non-Fiction

Fall 2019

Taught By: Alex Halberstadt

Section: B

CRN: 2180

Credits: 4

Literary or creative nonfiction (memoir, essays, reportage, and hybrid work that can’t easily be categorized) treats the real world with the imaginative richness usually associated with fiction. It is robust enough to encompass a wide range of styles, from the personal voice to engaged cultural critiques. In this intermediate workshop class the essential elements of a compelling literary nonfiction narrative will be examined – strategic choice of subject, expressive use of language, the writer's presence in the piece, research strategies. Students will read significant examples of such work and will write literary narratives of their own, beginning with occasional pieces and progressing to more substantial work throughout the semester. Pre-req of LLSW 2010 Intro Non-Fiction, minimum grade of B.
