H75: Creative Nonfiction in Splash 2011 (Apr. 02, 2011)
Have you ever witnessed a situation that was so perfect it almost seemed fictional? Or maybe one day you noticed some previously overlooked detail that made the world seem just a bit more exciting. If you've experienced either of these moments, you already understand the essence of Creative Nonfiction. Creative Nonfiction (CNF) is a genre of writing whereby completely true stories and everyday happenings become works of art. In this course, we will read excerpts from notable CNF essays and discuss what makes CNF unique. Once we've figured out what makes an essay Creative Nonfiction, you'll get to write your own.
