Advanced Nonfiction

WRITING 420

For qualified students who wish to continue their creative writing and reading through immersion in an intensive nonfiction workshop. Students wishing to enroll must not only register but also submit a nonfiction sample of not more than 20 pages (double-spaced). The sample must include a cover page with: your name, the semester you took L13 320 Creative Nonfiction Writing 2: Literary Journalism and/or L13 327 Creative Nonfiction Writing: Personal Essay/Memoir, and the name of the instructor you had for that class. Email samples to Edward McPherson at emcpherson@wustl.edu no later than December 10, 2021. This course enrolls from the waitlist and no one is officially enrolled until contacted by the instructor. This course counts toward the Creative Writing Concentration. PREREQ: L13 220 Creative Nonfiction Writing 1 and either L13 320 Creative Nonfiction Writing 2: Literary Journalism or L13 327 Creative Nonfiction Writing: Personal Essay/Memoir. While some preference will be given to creative writing concentrators, this is not a guarantee that all concentrators will be accepted into the course. With this in mind, concentrators are urged to plan ahead in order to fulfill the 400-level course requirement in their genre track. 3 units.
