In this intensive 4-week course, you will navigate the vast and varied terrain of the creative nonfiction genre through imaginative writing, attentive reading, and lively conversation. You will mine something new out of truth, both inner and outer. You will find your voice as you reckon with the self and the world.

This online course is meant to support writers at any stage of their journey and at any stage of ideation or drafting of their writing projects. Along with shared readings and daily prompts, we will discuss practices and rituals that nurture ideation, sustaining a project, and revision. We will use a partner and group workshop model that could continue beyond the end of the course.
