One thought on “Writing Creative Nonfiction

  1. Tracey

    I was willing to give the lecturer slack in the category of presentation it was borderline awful, but she s not a professional reader, and if the course was worthwhile I d make allowances However, her writing examples are also borderline awful and when she produces the schooner plied the waterway as a metaphor because cashmere is three ply and therefore the boat was weaving its way along the shore no I m sorry, no verb used with object , plied, plying.1 to work with or at diligently employ busil [...]

  2. Titus Hjelm

    This is rather different from the creative non fiction books usually available Lee Gutkind, etc More than half of the lectures are rather technical lessons about storytelling technique, using fiction as example Unfortunately, this is what makes it a less than ideal audiobook Big ideas work in audio, tiny details not so much there is the additional print material of course Mazzeo has a sparkly voice, but clearly reads from notes, which makes the too perfect inflection tiresome at times I ve only [...]

  3. Andy

    One thing that irked me is that this is a work of non fiction but the author doesn t use the tools for crafting good non fiction that she recommends For example build a narrative arc nothing of the sort show don t tell she tells us stuff, including don t tell Still, those are good rules, so if you ve never heard any of this before, it could be a good introduction I am still looking for a good book on writing non fiction I don t think there is any formula In the meantime, I think one would be bet [...]

    It s not the best trip that The Great Courses has taken me on, but Writing Creative Nonfiction offers valuable insight nonetheless Whether you dabble in fiction, nonfiction, or take writing quite seriously, this course has something to offer.

  5. Veronica Wellington

    This professor did a great job of keeping the lectures interesting, and making sure the point to each lesson was clearly explained She provided great examples, and has helped me think of creative ways to improve my writing I recommend it to anyone who wants a little help in writing creatively, whether fiction or nonfiction.

  6. Einar Nielsen

    I listened to all of these lectures in a little over a weeks time Made part of my daily routine to go for a walk and in the same time listen to two or three of them I was really surprised how much I learned from this nonfiction course even though my interest is mainly in fiction I think I can recommend this to everyone that enjoys writing Sure there are a few lectures that only concern nonfiction but you can skip them if you want Me I enjoyed them as well Who know maybe I will write a book like [...]

  7. Natasha

    I ve written a book and look forward to the day I can implement Tilar Mazzeo s tips into my writing She gives a lot of great advice, including helpful examples Ahh, the sweet anticipation of immersing myself in the savory delights of wordsmithing Maybe I need to take another look at her lecture on purple prose.

  8. Kent

    Not that great A few nuggets to glean from this It s intolerable to watch her video presentation because she uses such canned speech and ridiculous hand gestures the entire time Kind of a dud I did however take up a few of her suggested readings which I will hopefully be giving better reviews here in the future.

  9. Jason Holliday

    Full of good ideas, examples, and exercises to help improve your non fiction writing while many of the concepts would also work equally well with fiction writing A bit dry at times but most books or lectures in this category are guilty of the same Overall, worth the time investment for anyone interested in writing.

  10. Genevieve

    I listened to this audio book to help me with my personal writing I really only write for myself, however I did find this book helpful These lectures go over different ways to approach research, narratives, creating characters, and a hand full of other helpful topics I really enjoyed this book.

  11. Donna

    A well done set of lectures that are of interest to the writer of both fiction and non fiction I enjoyed listening to them in the car and will probably listen to them again at another time so I can absorb of the material better.

  12. Erik

    Listened to the audio book It was an eye opener Good for all types of writing not just creative nonfiction If you need to write, I suggest you check it out.

  13. Gary

    Very well done Interesting, filled with useful information on what is, for me, a fresh, new way to teach composition and rhetoric Inspires one to keep writing, too.

  14. Tobiah Zarlez

    Pretty generic advice, not really worth the time Better to listen to one of the other writing courses and just apply what you learn to non fiction.
