Writing Nonfiction

See what people are saying

  • “There’s so much learning value in hearing people’s assignments and the instructor’s insightful analysis.”

    Noreen, August 29, 2014

  • “The class opened my eyes: nonfiction can be every bit as inventive and exciting to read (and write) as fiction. I enjoyed the process of deconstructing a piece to find out exactly how a writer makes it shine.”

  • “I’m very critical of myself and struggled enormously with my own feeling of inadequacy throughout, but the encouragement was tremendous. It made me realise that…my writing style is different and it works for me.”

  • “What did it feel like to get live feedback on my work? Constructive. I learned how to be more self-confident in writing. The feedback…has really stuck with me :)”

  • “The workshop taught me how to review my interview technique and how to use research material to create a story that tells the truth. I liked the positive learning environment. Due to the super-effective build-up of the workshop, I learned a lot.”

  • “For me this was a literary feast! It was the first time I have ever participated in such an event, it was the first time I shared my writing with strangers, and it was the first time since my primary school days that I received formal instruction on writing itself and the process of getting there (interviews, research, etc.) and it was WONDERFUL. I didn’t want it to end.”

  • “I learned how to push through my resistance and produce a decent first draft. What were the highlights of the class? The diversity of the group and the skillful way the instructor accepted our input without compromising the fundamentals.”
