Adv Workshop in Lit Nonfiction
This intensive writing workshop will explore the artist’s quest for truth and address the question: how do we as writers in a post-modern age where memory, image and testimony are all suspect, know what we know? This course includes reading a selection of classic and contemporary literary nonfiction with selections from memoir, personal essay, travel writing, and literary journalism. Students will submit original manuscripts, critique the manuscripts of peers, and will submit revised work for peer and faculty review. (May not duplicate content of MCW 50B)
