Advanced Nonfiction Workshop: Biography and Profile
ENGL 158
Fall 2008 not offered

This advanced workshop offers students with prior experience with and understanding of nonfiction writing a chance to read biographies and write biographically. Among other questions we will ask: Where and how does such a portrait begin? What responsibilities does representing that life involve? What constitutes evidence about someone else's life? What kinds of research are necessary? How does, and to what extent should, the writer's relationship to his or her subject inform the portrait?
