An annual collaboration among the Department of English, Fiction Writing, and Journalism, Creative Nonfiction Week presents a range of voices, familiar and new, renowned and emerging, all helping to define and redefine the genre of creative nonfiction.
Past presenters include Alex Kotlowitz, Scott McCloud, Art Spiegelman, Jamaica Kincaid, Beverly Donofrio, Luis Alberto Urrea, and many others. Creative nonfiction comes in many forms: memoir, narrative journalism, travel writing, personal essay, descriptive storytelling, and more. What they all have in common is a basis in reality from careful observation to honest, emotional truth.
