MFA 682 - Nonfiction Theory & Technique


Unit(s): 3

An in-depth study of nonfiction craft elements and how writers use them to produce a variety of effects. Students read contemporary work with a close eye on such elements as scene, setting, characterization, argument, voice, narrative authority, use of facts, finding a form, and others. The course will also investigate the genre as a whole-what it is, what makes it distinct, and how an understanding of technique can help us form aesthetic judgements toward any piece of nonfiction
