- Writing Creative Non-fiction
Creative non-fiction is the art of constructing actual lives, places, and events using storytelling techniques usually associated with fiction. Creative non-fiction is one of the fastest growing literary genres in Australia and beyond. In this unit, students are introduced to key sub-genres of creative non-fiction - such as biography, memoir, narrative journalism and true crime - from the perspective of the writer. Students will analyse creative non-fiction in order to develop skills in writing creatively in one of the available sub-genres, supported by feedback and workshopping. This unit also invites students to consider the ethics of writing at the boundaries of non-fiction and fiction.
