This class explores creative nonfiction work that attends to the geographical dimensions of human experience and the character of place – “placewriting”. Students will investigate how creative nonfiction evokes the human relationship with place and the geographical dimensions of personal and group identity. The class consists of two parts: discussion and critique of six creative nonfiction works on place, and a writer’s workshop designed to enable students produce their own work in the genre focused on a local community or place.
