4-Week: Creative Nonfiction 101

$205.00 Members
$230.00 Non-members

Interested in writing nonfiction but not sure where to start? This class is the place. In this four-week introductory course, you’ll be given the tools to kick-start—or reignite—your love of writing nonfiction: memoir, personal essay, narrative nonfiction, criticism, journalism, or any combination of these areas that suits your passion and talent. Through exercises, readings, discussions, and goal-setting, you’ll find new ways to draw from your own experiences and the world around you to find truths and capture them on the page. No experience required. Nonfiction 101 is a great way to warm up and test the waters before moving on to more advanced, specialized nonfiction classes and workshops.

Due to concerns over the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), Lighthouse is moving all in-person classes to remote participation through Zoom, a simple teleconferencing technology, for the duration the Spring Session. All participants will be emailed guidance for how to use Zoom and will be provided technical support. Please send any questions or concerns to [email protected].

Please note that our 4-week workshops do not include formal critiques, though there may be opportunities for informal sharing. If you’d like your work critiqued in depth, please see the 8-week workshop listings.
