Intermediate Nonfiction Workshop
ENGL 325
Fall 2023
Section: 01  
This course may be repeated for credit.

This workshop offers students with some background in writing a chance to experiment with essay forms, discuss a wide range of published texts, as well as your own work, and collectively consider the possibilities of the genre. We will read writing that tends to congregate around a few (often overlapping) questions, materials, and strategies with which much work termed "nonfiction" has been concerned. What does it mean to gather, produce, represent, interpret (and sometimes reimagine) often contested facts, which may be personal and collective, immediate and historical? How does the practice of memory speak to the politics of representation? What is the role of formal invention? Your own writing over the semester will include short and longer works, as well as revision.
