Advanced Non-Fiction

Spring 2020

Taught By: Colette Brooks

Section: A

CRN: 1832

Credits: 4

In this workshop course focusing on expressive nonfiction, students will explore how to craft nonfiction narratives of varying lengths from a half-formed idea or impulse. The focus will be twofold: first to generate ideas for pieces based on individual interests, with some suggestions, then to work with different scales and narrative strategies. (This kind of work might also serve as preparation for the Capstone.) Building on the elements of craft students have already explored at earlier levels (language, structure, research, revision), students will develop short and more extended pieces over the semester. Readings will cover a range of nonfiction narratives and writers’ reflections that serve as models of creative problem solving. Throughout the semester, we will grapple with a perennial writer’s question: I have an idea – now what do I do with it? Must be enrolled in one of the following Classifications: Junior, Fifth Year or Senior. Pre-req of LLSW 3510 Intermediate Non-fiction minimum grade of C.
