Intermediate creative nonfiction, this course will be focused on reading and responding to engaging works of creative nonfiction in multiple media, as well as composing and workshop for your own multimodal writing. We will cover traditional nonfiction elements such as sensory details, narrative, and expressing our place in time and space, while also including audio, visual and interactive text to engage readers. Like an artist’s paintbrush, the computer can be a creative tool in the writing process. Exploring methods, forms, and functions of works of both print and digital nonfiction will provide students with context and the foundational skills to express themselves through multimedia writing projects such as print, timeline, audio, visual, & immersive multimedia essays. Writers will become composers, telling their stories with digital media.
This digital section aims to expand on the genre & multiple forms of creative nonfiction while also encouraging you, as writers, to think outside the box and consider new forms of writing, both through the course readings and your own writing. Observe and explore the world around you and always listen to your broccoli.
In Spring 2022 this course fulfills a DH [Digital Humanities] requirement for English:TBD majors.
