Join us for a 3-week course exploring the genre of creative nonfiction. Discover your unique voice as you write your own story. We'll work on elements of craft, share work, edit work, and share it again, learning how to hone in on one particular moment in your life. Come ready to chase the ideas that spark your imagination, and put words on the page that surprise, amuse, move, and inspire you and others.
