ENGL 4433 Advanced Creative Nonfiction: Flash Nonfiction (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

In this writing workshop, we will focus on producing short creative nonfiction pieces, including micro-narratives; metaphor essays; segmented essays; lyric essays; apppropriate(d) form pieces; persona pieces; and informative sketches. To generate ideas and to test potential audience interest for each of your essays, we will generate tweets, texts, and status updates. To identify forms and techniques for this sort of writing, we will read and discuss flash nonfiction from a variety of sources, including an edited anthology of short creative nonfiction, magazine and newspaper columns, and online literary journals, websites, and blogs. Workshops will also be frequent and brief: each student will write and workshop a new or revised flash piece nearly every single week.
