308. Advanced Creative Non-Fiction Writing.

The students’ own writing provides much of the material for this course, although essays by contemporary writers are read and studied. Students are given opportunities to use non-fiction topics and forms of their own choice. Special attention is paid to problems of voice and narrative method, in particular to the role of narrators in mediating what is observed. The revision and editing process is also emphasized. Prerequisite: English 243. Also offered through Outdoor Studies.
