The Porch: Advanced Creative Nonfiction Workshop

In this workshop we'll focus on completed drafts of creative nonfiction by participants—essays, memoir excerpts, or works of longform narrative nonfiction—with attention given to every aspect of the writing, from structure and theme to sentence-level concerns. Participants should be eager to share their work, listen to the feedback of their peers, and learn from the process of reading and giving feedback (both spoken and written) on others' work as well. You should have two or three full drafts of work ready to present; this is not a generative class. While we will discuss assigned readings at most class sessions, the bulk of our attention will go to participant work. Workshop is limited to 12 participants.
