COMP 375 - Creative Nonfiction:Biography 3 s.h.

This is an advanced course in biography, which involves literary research; discussion of biography as a literary genre; workshops of student writing; and the completion of a 25 page literary biography with citations. Workship of student writing involves discussion of the merits and need for revision in the material submitted by students in class. Students read the selections submitted for discussion prior to class and prepare written responses in advance, which they then further develop and elaborate in class in discussion with other students. Students are trained in the conventions and aesthetics of literary biography in preparation for workshop participation. Workshops may involve a combination of group-focused and full-class discussions. A-E only. Offered once every two years.
