ENGL 282 - The Crafts of Writing: Creative Nonfiction

This course will focus in a variety of ways on the development of skills for writing nonfiction, building on the work done in ENGL 120. Depending on the instructor, it may approach the creative process through, for example, translating personal experience into autobiography or memoir, or developing the essay form, the opinion piece, the journalistic report or a variety of other forms. It will involve extensive readings and discussion of nonfiction in addition to regular nonfiction writing assignments. The course may be conducted to some extent in workshop format; the emphasis will be on continuing to develop writing skills. Course may be taken twice for credit, so long as it is with a different instructor. Prerequisite(s):   taken at Macalester. Alternate years. (4 Credits)
