Intro to Writing Non-Fiction
An in-depth study of literary prose from the dual perspectives of writer and critic. Students write essays, fiction, and literary criticism and analyze each of these forms in traditional classroom and workshop settings. The class looks at issues of prose from the inside out, focusing on issues of style, structure, usage, and revision. Typical writing assignments include fairy tales, short stories, personal essays, new journalism and cultural criticism. Students also work as editors, pouring over their own and others' manuscript with an eye on style and revision.
