Wr 523 MFA Core Workshop in Nonfiction

The MFA Core Workshop in Nonfiction concentrates on elements necessary for writing successful nonfiction prose --including structure, voice, dialog, characterization, and point-of-view-- with a primary emphasis on the in-class workshop and peer review of student pieces. Nonfiction models, both short pieces and book-length, will be read and discussed, and students will write critical responses regarding those models. May be taken up to six times for credit. This course is restricted to graduate students admitted to the Writing Program (Nonfiction).
