From Life to Writing: Explore Creative Non-fiction, Including Travel Writing, Memoir and the Persona

This 3-hour masterclass explores the fundamentals of creative non-fiction [CNF]. Creative non-fiction includes memoir, the personal essay (aka ‘the lyric essay’), travel writing, reportage, comic writing, narrative history, research narratives and other sub-genres. This course provides beginners an introduction to the fascinating possibilities (both artistic and commercial) of creative non-fiction. While poetry, fiction and stage theatre are admirably vibrant here in Singapore, CNF is currently not as popular here in Singapore as it is in other English-language literary markets and cultures.
