In the process, we will join in the ongoing discussion about what creative nonfiction is by reading and writing many of its common forms: personal essay, group portrait, experiment/immersion, journey, and collage. Reading as writers, we will focus especially on structure, style, and central questions. Our goal with this approach is to develop imagination and fluency with multiple ways of telling true stories.
