Course Description
Compelling nonfiction follows the same techniques as compelling fiction - character development, plotting, pacing, story development, drama, emotion, and research. Learn the techniques of writing real life into page-turning nonfiction. Creative nonfiction encompasses memoirs, news stories, biographies, historical essays, belles lettre, academic texts, magazine features, and so on.
Course Objectives
Students will learn: Why "That's what really happened" isn't compelling on its own, story pacing, plot structure, ethics and basic research and interviewing techniques.
