Evening Nonfiction Workshop

May 18, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Instructor: Jay Kauffmann
Cost: $189.00 Members | $210.00 Non-Members
8 Wednesdays, March 30 -May 18, 2016 | 6:30 PM-9:00 PM

LIMITED TO 11 STUDENTS.

This workshop will explore the essential elements of creative nonfiction, such as sensory imagery, metaphoric language, distinctive voice, dramatic arc, and focused theme. Participants will discuss essays and memoir pieces submitted to the group. In addition, there will be readings and in-class exercises that address pertinent craft issues. There will also be opportunities to consider non-craft issues associated with this genre, such as “truth” and “memory,” and how to overcome fear when revealing intimate secrets.

Jay Kauffmann’s fiction and nonfiction have appeared in numerous publications and anthologies here and abroad. Winner of the Andrew Grossbardt Memorial Prize and nominated for the Pushcart Prize and Best New American Voices, he has taught at Randolph College, Vermont College, University of Virginia, and Miller School.
