WRI 213 Creative Writing: Creative Nonfiction 4cr

Students write and revise several pieces and, in that process, are exposed to a range of strategies for writing articles and essays. Students read and study the work of published authors with the goal of identifying the elements of nonfiction craft and finding a nonfiction "mentor." Work may range from the personal essay to the investigative article that depends on research and interviews. Students are helped to develop useful response to their peers' work, an essential element of workshop participation. Students may also explore requirements of specific publications and study the process of submitting query letters or completed work. May be repeated for credit as WRI 316.
