True Story: Teen Creative Nonfiction

They say truth is stranger than fiction…and it’s often more interesting. Especially if you can translate that truth into fascinating pieces by learning the craft that goes into creative nonfiction.
 
Here you will gain an introduction to six major forms of creative nonfiction— memoir, personal essay, feature articles, profiles, reviews, and college essays. You’ll learn what they are and how to create them. Each class is taught by a teacher adept at helping young writers discover and develop their unique voices.
 
Better writers produce stronger college applications, and an extracurricular writing class is an impressive addition to any profile. When you know how to express yourself well with words, you’ve got a special power.

Notes

In NYC, this course is offered as a 6-week class (with 3-hour sessions), and also as a 4-week class in the summer (with two 2-hour sessions per week). It’s also offered as a 5-hour One-day Intensive.

I honestly loved the critiques of my instructor. She used praise but at the same time gave feedback, in a good way, on what to work on.
