6 p.m.–8 p.m.
The Creative Nonfiction Writing Group
Perhaps you've already taken creative nonfiction classes at The Loft, and now you're well into your own writing project. Do you feel it's time to move beyond craft talk and immerse yourself in the writing process?
This class is for anyone writing creative nonfiction--memoir, essay, narrative nonfiction—who wants guidance on language, characterization, theme, and organization. Class time will be structured as a writing group, with opportunities to share work and receive feedback from classmates and the teaching artist.
We'll look at examples of successful creative nonfiction and apply those principles to our own work. Students will be exposed to the many different forms creative nonfiction can take. A portion of each class will be set aside for writing exercises and for workshopping longer pieces of work.
$5 copy fee, due to the teaching artist at the beginning of the first class.
