ENGL 4522 Advanced Creative Nonfiction: Memoir, Biography, Profile (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

An advanced creative nonfiction workshop on writing memoir and literary profiles. Weekly readings by contemporary writers will serve as models for writing by each workshop member (4-5 pages of new work weekly through early November; the last month of class will focus on revision). Our emphasis will be on student writing and critique, with attention given to genre, audience, and revision. Workshop assessment and peer-review will be supplemented by conferences. Given the intensive nature of the workshop, attendance and participation are especially important. Final assessment by portfolio.
