Writing Outside the Lines: Experimental Forms and Process in Creative Nonfiction @ Creative Nonfiction Foundation
Jan 11 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Writing Outside the Lines: Experimental Forms and Process in Creative Nonfiction @ Creative Nonfiction Foundation | Pittsburgh | Pennsylvania | United States

There are many ways to tell stories that are true.

In this lively five-workshop series, examples and writing prompts will help writers practice innovative ways of breaking through traditional essay structure and thinking about how form can complement content in creative nonfiction.

Activities and prompts include writing a short food memoir in the form of a recipe card, a flash nonfiction piece about a transformative moment that leaps in time, a six-word memoir, an encyclopedia entry, and a sensory map. Participants and peers will examine how the fine art of perhaps-ing, or the speculative, can broaden the reach of storytelling. Between sessions, writers will revise their work to share with the instructor and their peers at the next meeting, and for the final workshop, they will choose one piece to revise for possible publication. Writers will also learn more about magazines that publish experimental and traditional forms.
