Students will learn:
- To read, write and reflect on contemporary prose non-fiction
- To write intelligently about ambiguity and ambivalence
- To understand the construction of place through literary history
- To undertake site-specific research and to write about it in ways that engage the general reader
- To write about personal experience with sound literary judgement
- To offer and receive constructive feedback with kindness and courtesy
The reading list and set texts will change each year as we follow developments in creative non-fiction prose. Themes will include ownership of and belonging to nation and place; being outdoors; site-specific histories and archaeology; writing about the natural world in time of crisis. Some classes will be based on discussion of set texts and others will be writing workshops.
