In this workshop, participants will learn everything they need to know about how to research write nonfiction: memoir, and personal essays. This class is for beginners who want to learn the range and scope of creative nonfiction writing. We will read from Lee Gutkind's seminal text, "Keeping It Real". There will be exercises and participants will use the completed exercises to research and then start a piece of nonfiction or revise work already begun.
