In this course you’ll have opportunities to read, write and share different examples of Creative Non-fiction. Classes are structured around, writing exercises, workshopping and discussion and you’ll be given homework each week.
Are you interested in writing about real life subjects or situations?

There is no prerequisite for enrolling in this course.
