CREATIVE NON FICTION
Tutor – JILLIAN SULLIVAN
Sorry this Class is Full – Waiting List Available Though
There are three points of view from which a writer can be considered, Russian-American writer Vladimir Nabokov says. The writer can be considered as a story-teller, as a teacher, and as an enchanter. The best of creative non-fiction – and of all writing- combines the three.
In this course, students will explore ways to tell the truth they want to tell- the facts, the history, the questions, the personal. They’ll create with story; with characters, dialogue, narrative, with the details that evoke the scene. There’ll be time for writing, time to discuss, and time for one on one tutor feedback.
Jillian Sullivan lives and writes in the Ida Valley. She’s published novels, collections of short stories, poetry, non-fiction and memoir. She teaches writing in NZ, and in America each year for the Highlights Foundation. Her latest book, A Way Home, tells the story of building a new life and a strawbale home in Central Otago (Potton and Burton 2016). www.jilliansullivan.co.nz
