5:30pm - 8:40pm
This will be a creative writing workshop on the craft of contemporary nonfiction. We will explore a notion of nonfiction as a heterogeneous and often hybrid genre, grasping the form’s quicksilver nature by mapping some of the shapeshifting ways that nonfiction can behave: as memoir, reportage, ethnography, cultural critique, (auto)biography, manifesto, and more. Classroom emphasis will be placed on workshopping student writing, as we progress through a series of focused weekly writing assignments and readings, with space made for considering larger, longer-term student writing projects and goals. Course readings may include selections by Moyra Davey, Herbert Huncke, Chris Kraus, Jackie Wang, and others.
All courses subject to change.
