(Posted 5/20/22) STUDENTS, Writing and Reading True Stories in ENGL 3230 (CRN 2063)

There's still room in a course in the groundbreaking genre of creative nonfiction. Students will read true stories from the finest contemporary writers in the genre, who in large and small ways change the way we see the world. Their perspectives range from those who have served time in prison to those who have rescued calves during blizzards. Podcasts provide some of our readings and introduce us to real-life characters, like an artist who has face blindness, and a lawyer whose murder trial affects our current judicial system. Class discussions will determine what makes a story interesting and memorable. Students will also experiment with writing and revising their own narrative essays. This course is workshop-oriented, meaning that students will read and respond to each other’s work.
