Creative Non Fiction online course with Sian Prior
We are living in the age of ‘reality hunger’. The reading public has an insatiable appetite for well-crafted true stories. This accessible six week course will introduce you to some of the essential skills required to write publishable works of creative non fiction. From essays to memoirs and autobiographies, from personal columns to self-help books, the ingredients remain the same: well-planned and focussed research, a clear and convincing voice, an understanding of the difference between the 'situation' you're describing and the 'story' you've come to tell, and an ability to ‘show’ rather than ‘tell’ your readers what you want them to know. You will also learn how to write a persuasive publishing proposal, and receive some individual feedback on your work.
