Introduction to Writing Creative Non-Fiction
Courses that explore creative forms of non-fiction are few and far between.
However, it’s one of the most up-and-coming forms of writing in contemporary literature and some of the most talked-about books from the last few years have been works of creative non-fiction: The Outrun, The Lonely City, The Last Act of Love, So Sad Today, The Argonauts, White Girls, Between The World And Me, Men Explain Things To Me and more.
This course will act as an introduction, focusing on the different forms of non-fiction, such as life writing, place writing, memoir, personal essays, lyric essays, travel writing and literary journalism.
The course is for anyone interested in developing different forms of non-fiction.
You might be a beginner, a graduate of creative writing, a journalist or a copywriter – in fact, anyone who is looking to explore different forms of writing will find this course beneficial.
It will offer practical exercises and discussions, punctuated with group readings and collective analysis, of important creative non-fiction texts.
On this course you will:
- learn how to find a story
- explore creativity through writing about place
- write about a significant moment in your life
- complete short writing ‘workouts’
- identify creative non-fiction prompts for your work
- learn how and where creative non-fiction gets published - and how to pitch an idea.
What will I gain?
You’ll leave this course with a robust understanding of the different forms of creative non-fiction, and an understanding of how to begin a new piece of work.
