This course will offer students — in a workshop setting — the opportunity to read, discuss, and practice writing the major forms and styles of nonfiction prose, with special attention to understanding, appreciating — and practicing — the essay as a literary genre.  Students will express their understanding of this literary form in a series of well-crafted essays. The primary texts in the course will be the participants’ own writing.  Additional readings will be drawn from modern and contemporary essayists. 

To be considered for admission to this class, please submit 8-12 photocopied pages of your creative nonfiction (no poetry or academic writing), along with an application form, to Professor McQuade's mailbox in 322 Wheeler, BY 4:00 p.m., TUESDAY, OCTOBER 28, AT THE LATEST.
