Narrative Nonfiction Writing

Instructor: Drew Jubera


Do you want to build a nonfiction story but are missing some tools? Every writer's been there. This six-week workshop provides easy-to-apply techniques for your toughest non-fiction needs, including books, magazine journalism, memoirs, profiles, essays, and arts criticism. You will read, write and discuss finding a voice that you and your readers will love, making place a character, constructing a “sweep paragraph” that tells and sells your story, using small scenes to unreel the big picture, and approaching narrative as a night out with your most dangerous friend. Requirements: engagement and a willingness to share. All levels of writers welcome.
