I never want a boring job either, though I don't have an answer to this reader's question. Anyone want to weigh in on the literary journalism vs. creative nonfiction debate? Thanks in advance.
I was wondering what you might know about "literary journalism" (also
known as "creative journalism and "narrative journalism". This is a
new term for me. Wikipedia and other online sites define it as being
synonymous with "creative non-fiction". However, I do think that it
typically entails more traditional reporting and applies more to
newspaper and magazine writing than "creative non-fiction". I don't
know for sure though…do you?
I have come across very few graduate programs in literary journalism.
The curriculum for ordinary journalism programs appear far too dry for
me (originally, I wanted to get my Masters in poetry). Mi vision is
not merely to report world events, but to interpret them with poetic
eyes, much like in publications such as National Geographic. If you
have ay information concerning graduate programs in this field, I
would appreciate it if you would pass it along. Thank you.
