Creative Writing: Non-Fiction I, II & III

An exploration of the fascinating possibilities (both artistic and commercial) in creative non-fiction. A very elastic genre with many sub-specialities, this introductory writing course is for those who are interested in writing creative non-fiction, which includes the memoir, personal essay (‘the lyric essay’), travel writing, reportage, comic writing, narrative history and other sub-genres.

The prerequisite for level II is the completion of the previous level or prior experience. 
Applicants who wish to join level II and have prior experience in non-fiction writing are required to submit writing portfolio for trainer’s review. 

Applicants with no prior experience are encouraged to start from level I.
