Writing Creative Nonfiction | The Great Courses

Whether you're looking to launch into a new professional career as a creative nonfiction writer, dabble in the genre as a pastime, start a personal blog, or simply get inside the mind of a creative nonfiction writer at work, you'll find much to learn from and enjoy in Writing Creative Nonfiction.

Writing Creative Nonfiction

We all have a story we want to share with others. Maybe it's a funny or dramatic moment in your everyday life. Perhaps it's an unforgettable trip overseas or a heartwarming family reunion. Or possibly even the life of a close relative or public figure that has inspired you in some unique way. Regardless of  the story or experience, there's no better way to write, record, and share it than through the power of creative nonfiction.

VIDEO PREVIEW :: Writing Creative Nonfiction

Bringing together the imaginative strategies of fiction storytelling and new ways of narrating true, real-life events, creative nonfiction is the fastest-growing part of the creative writing world—and the fastest-growing part of the market for books as well. It's a cutting-edge genre that's reshaping how we write (and read) everything from biographies and memoirs to blogs and public speaking scripts to personal essays and magazine articles.

Mastering the art and craft of creative nonfiction can help you write more effectively in a variety of professional and personal situations, provide dynamic new ways for you to preserve life experiences as they truly occurred or as you felt them, allow you to share your stories in ways that other people are sure to find compelling, and open up new windows on how you think about your own personal history—and the personal history of others.

VIDEO PREVIEW :: Writing Creative Nonfiction

Course Instructor: These 24 lectures by award-winning writing instructor and Professor Tilar J. Mazzeo of Colby College, a New York Times best-selling author, are a chance for you to explore the entire process of writing creative nonfiction, from brainstorming for the perfect idea to getting your final product noticed by literary agents and publishers.
