This suite of courses explores non-fiction writing. You will learn how to write, edit, and publish nonfiction across popular genres and mediums. You will also learn best practices for pitching and submitting your work in today’s publishing landscape.
The phrase ‘stranger-than-fiction' exists for a reason. Some of the most fascinating stories are completely true, and there’s a huge audience ready to read them. In fact, non-fiction book sales grew by over $6 billion from 2013-2018 with no sign of slowing down. The Explore Non-Fiction Writing Suite covers the best ways to tell a non-fiction story: as a book, a memoir, as a magazine article, or in a travel piece.
If you dream of becoming a full-time author or just have a story to tell, Write and Publish Your Nonfiction Book will teach you how to plan, research, write, edit, and publish your masterpiece. After learning what goes into the general non-fiction book, you will learn about the art of memoir. What you produce in Write Your Life Story may find a lucrative market, just like the bestselling Rocket Boys and Angela's Ashes.
While magazines have mostly gone digital, the non-fiction essay is still a page turner. The Craft of Magazine Writing focuses on time-tested techniques for researching, writing, and pitching your work to magazines. Another highly engaging way to tell a true story is the ‘travel piece.’ Travel Writing will teach you how to translate what you experience in your travels into publishable articles and books.
