SummaryExplore techniques to adapt true events for memoir, travel writing, and journalistic writing with Gail Folkins.
DescriptionCreative nonfiction, a true story told in a literary style, marries fact with poetry, resulting in writing that is both informative and entertaining. This course provides a start in this genre by recreating dialog, characters, and setting to explore true events and their impact. In addition, students will have an opportunity to explore their voices and possible writing formats, whether memoir, travel writing, or journalistic. Students will come away from the course with an idea for an essay and the start of a scene.

Gail Folkins often writes about her deep roots in the American West. She is the author of a memoir titled “Light in the Trees,” named a 2016 Foreword INDIES finalist in the nature category, and “Texas Dance Halls: a Two-Step Circuit.” Folkins teaches creative writing at Hugo House in Seattle.
