Creative Nonfiction Graphic

In this class, open to all levels, students look at the paralyzing stories that must be told, and examine how experience, reflection, and imagination are integrated in personal narrative. Discussions focus on published works that journey honestly into the hard stories, integrating traditional and contemporary styles to create new ones. Students practice techniques for entering into their own stories, creating original works, and analyze one another's attempts to artfully place the subjective in the context of the larger world.
