Workshop

How to Create Creative Nonfiction (FULL)

With: 
Christopher Johnston

NOTE: This class is now full and we are no longer accepting registrations. Sorry! Please check out our other class offerings, and sign up for our newsletter to be the first to hear about newly added classes.


This four-session workshop will provide an in-depth look at how to create prose that is fact-based and chronicles real life events rather than fiction, but can incorporate personal reflection, opinions and experiences. We will perform several exercises that focus on key skills required, such as observation, interviewing and shaping historical scenes. These can be applied to a wide variety of creative nonfiction pieces from personal essay to memoir, current issues and events and travel. Participants will receive constructive feedback on their writing, and we will also discuss markets for creative nonfiction. Open to intermediate writers.
