| Unit Description
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 including biography, historical biofiction, memoir, narrative journalism, and oral and digital storytelling. Students will analyse creative non-fiction and develop skills in writing creatively in one of their chosen sub-genres, supported by feedback and workshopping. This unit also invites students to consider the ethics of representation at the boundaries of non-fiction and fiction.
