Creative nonfiction has recently experienced a rise in popularity, and the ability to write in this genre will increase a student's chances of publishing in today's marketplace. While the course involves reading and writing creative nonfiction only, the methodology that students learn can be applied to almost any form of writing including essays for magazines and websites, commentaries for radio and television, scripts for video and film, descriptions for travel and nature writing, and even to the crafting of novels and short story collections. In today's globally conscious world, the ability of the creative nonfiction writer to use a specific story or incident to illuminate a universal human experience is more appreciated than ever.
