CRWR 128 Critical Reading & Writing: Fiction Writers as Creative Non-fiction Writers


Course explores ways in which published writers bring their knowledge of fiction writing techniques such as dramatic scene, image, voice, story movement, and point of view to the writing of creative nonfiction. Using primarily journals, letters, and other private writings, students will research the writing processes of established fiction writers who have worked extensively in creative nonfiction modes–writers as diverse as Mark Twain, Isak Dinesen, Virginia Woolf, Zora Neale Hurston, John Edgar Wideman, Gretel Ehrlich, James Alan McPherson, Scott Russell Sanders, Alice Walker, Joyce Carol Oates, David Bradley, and others. In addition to offering insights about widening writing options in a growing nonfiction market for fiction writers, this course aids in development of oral, written, and research skills useful for any major and communications-related career.
