How Music Stories Us   This section of Creative Non-fiction will explore the ways in which our experiences with music shape our stories—how listening to (and/or making) music defines and transforms us. Examining a variety of modes in which writer’s engage with music—including memoir, review, lyric essay, creative analysis, and other hybrid forms—we will develop our own approaches to articulating the meaning of music in our own lives. Students need not have any formal or technical understanding of music to be successful in the course.
