Narrative Nonfiction Class
Instructor: Jim Auchmutey
Memorable stories do not happen in the inverted pyramid of journalism school; they unfold like the ghost tales we told as kids. In this course, we’ll learn how to recapture that natural sense of storytelling. We’ll study examples, do some writing, and critique each other’s work. Useful for anyone looking to write a book, memoir, essays, magazine articles, journalism small or large.
Class Limit is 12.
