Continue to expand the skills presented in Creative Nonfiction I as you develop your germinal writing into longer, mature works such as essays and book chapters. We will be looking, and then looking again, at our own work in order to see, as author Lillian Hellman put it, 'what was there for [you] once, what is there for [you] now.' Writers who have at least 10 double-spaced pages in draft form will most benefit from the class, a large percentage of which will be devoted to meaningful critique and revision of student work. Prerequisite: 'Get Serious: Creative Nonfiction I' or equivalent experience. This class offers ongoing support in a productive and nurturing environment and is designed to be repeated as often as you desire. Dawn is president of Dawn Marano & Associates, a literary consulting and developmental editing firm.
