Writing Creative Nonfiction is the difficult process of trying to capture the world in words. Sometimes it is the attempt to describe a place we have been or to remember a time in our lives. Most difficult of all, sometimes writing Creative Nonfiction involves trying to accurately portray the complex life or personality of another person. In this class, we will work on creating our own nonfiction pieces. In addition to drafting and revising student work, we will read illuminating profiles and essays by writers like Gene Weingarten, James Baldwin, and Hester Kaplan.
