Advanced Nonfiction Workshop|
This workshop offers students with prior experience writing creative nonfiction a chance to develop new work and to discuss intensively a range of longer form nonfiction, potentially including works by Annie Ernaux, Wayne Koestenbaum, Eileen Myles, and Jean Stafford. Class meetings will focus on the analysis of these published works and on constructive critique of essays submitted by members of the workshop.
