Creative Non-fiction

Course Image

Take your way with words to another level as you explore a genre that lends itself to variety and versatility. Literary journalism smudges the line between the real and the imagined by drawing on techniques that are used in fiction. This approach will add an extra dimension to life writing and factual stories, from memoirs and personal essays to travel pieces and online articles.
