CW/LT 358 - Write Here, Write Now: An Introduction to Immersion Writing

Over twelve weekly sessions, this course will facilitate student engagement with a genre of writing that merges the boundaries between literary art and research nonfiction. Creative nonfiction is the writing of the real. Practitioners explore both the world around them and the world within. Although it employs many of the same literary devices as fiction, creative nonfiction allows the writer to engage with moments and events from real life, and in so doing, to seek a new understanding of these experiences. As part of their study abroad experience, students will experiment with approaches such as Travel Writing, Immersion Journalism, and Immersion Memoir, with authenticity and inventiveness serving as keystones in the process.
