ENGL 16004 - Critical/Creative Non-Fiction

Course Credit: 1
Critical/Creative Non-Fiction This class introduces students to major writers and genres of contemporary and classic non-fictional writing particularly the genres of memoir, personal essay, literary criticism, and film review. As we consider these texts, we will be answering the questions: What is non-fiction? What is the relationship between reading non-fictional writings and writing about them? And What are the boundaries between creative and critical non-fictional writing? Throughout the semester, students will be writing and reading non-fiction by comparing and contrasting students writings with those by contemporary and classic essay writers. [AH, W]
