Writing Creative Non-Fiction: An Introduction - ENGL714

In this practical introduction to writing creative non-fiction, students research and write a number of creative (narrative) non-fiction pieces such as memoir, personal essay, and writing about place. We consider what creative non-fiction is, looking at the varied cultural contexts in which these very popular and influential texts are currently being written and published, with a focus on the Australian scene. This introductory course assists students in devising their own topics and developing their skills in primary research methods and narrative techniques. Assessment is based on participation, practical research tasks and the students' creative non-fiction writing
