Fall 2021 Course Details:
Learn to make facts dance. By employing the imagery of a poet, the drama of a novelist, and the content drive of a journalist, we will craft vivid and compelling and maybe even publishable narratives based on your life and the lives of others. We will study and write both longform and flash, as well as digital forms of CNF. For inspiration, we will read the masters such as Nikesh Shukla, Rebecca Skloot, Jerald Walker, Leslie Jamison, Joe Wilkins, and Jesmyn Ward. In this class you will hone your storytelling skills, which transfer well to other forms of creative and academic writing, as well as career pursuits. Prerequisite: English 501, 621, 526, 527 or permission of the instructor.**
In Spring 2021 this course may be used to satisfy a DH (Digital Humanities) requirement for English/TBD majors.
