Course Detail: Blurring the Lines: Perspective in Writing Fiction & Non-Fiction
How do you decide how to tell a story? How does changing perspective impact a story? This class will discuss the consequences of choosing whether to tell a story in fictional or nonfictional form, the differences between these forms, the ethics involved in writing true stories, and the use of perspective. Students will engage in point of view and perception exercises, and each student will produce fiction and nonfiction writing. There will be time in the second class meeting for work-shopping, and opportunities for sharing throughout the class.
