An upper division writing workshop, open to undergraduate and graduate students from any department who have either taken English 43-level writing seminars or have equivalent skills/experience.

Drawing on narrative strategies in memoir, the diary, travel writing, and fiction, students will have work-shopped in seminar two literary nonfiction pieces, 5-15 pages. Each week, students will turn in one-page critiques of the (one or two) student pieces being workshopped. Some weeks, as well, there will be a 1- or 2-page journal entry on prompts assigned (these entries may be used as part of the longer pieces).
