Course Content

Through exercises and readings, you will explore the increasingly boundary-pushing potential of non-fiction, dipping into autobiography, essay, reportage and even oral history. The course will focus on honing your eye as a writer, developing your voice, and incorporating the basics of good shoe-leather journalism.

Course Outline

There will be weekly writing exercises and guidance towards a long form piece of nonfiction but none of the work is mandatory and is only for practicing skills

Course Outcomes

Participants will be encouraged to produce their own piece of non-fiction work and get down to the nitty gritty of pitching and publishing.
