ENGL 16000 - Intro to Non-Fictional Writing

Course Credit: 1
INTRODUCTION TO NON-FICTIONAL WRITING This course introduces students to major writers and genres of contemporary and classic non-fictional writing-particularly the genres of memoir, personal essay, literary journalism, editorial writing, critical writing, and film review. The course focuses on answering questions such as “What is non-fiction?” “What are the boundaries between fiction and non-fiction?” and “What is the relationship between reading non-fictional writings and writing about them?” Students write and read non-fiction by comparing and contrasting students’ writings in creative non-fiction, the critical essay, and the review essay with those by contemporary and classic essay writers, and with writings by other students in the class as well. Annually. [AH, W]
