Creative Nonfiction Writing: Writing the World

In this writing workshop, we’ll discover and develop the vital spark of imagination in the realm of nonfiction.  You will take your eye—and your “I”—in search of subjects outside of yourself.  The world is our subject; together we’ll seek topics in people, things, and ideas.  You’ll move from shorter writing tasks to longer and more involved ones, while reading published essays to accompany your own work.

Application Deadline is June 29th.

Writing for Teens in an Adult World

This course introduces students to the writing of Young Adult literature. We will read and write narratives targeted to the young adult audience. We will examine many issues involved in crafting fiction and in so doing we will also investigate technical questions particular to the genre such as: What are the differences between great YA and great adult literature? What are the best ways to understand and quality in a YA text? We will look at what makes a text “young adult” in terms of tone, point of view, pace and subject matter as we challenge the conventions of the genre. The class will involve careful, critical consideration of selected readings, but the emphasis of the workshop will be on writing and critiquing our own work in a workshop setting.

Application Deadline is June 29th.
