Creative Nonfiction (a writing class)

Sundays March 10, 17, 24, 31 and April, 14, and 28, 2019

How can a piece of nonfiction glow with electricity and passion, hooking readers and holding them fascinated? Writers are accomplishing this today in the field of creative nonfiction. Although it’s not a new form, its popularity is increasing and its limits are being pushed, with amazing results, including hybrid forms (e.g. memoir written in verse). Explore this exciting genre with us as you craft pieces to share with the class. We will discuss biography, memoir, blog, and the personal essay. You choose which forms you want to try as you receive feedback, support, and best of all, the encouragement every writer needs. Register in person at the library. Class fee is payable at registration.

2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Fee: $60 (for the six-week session)

Instructor: Laura English
