Students work one-on-one with their professors during the course of seven quarters of online study and five concentrated 10-day residencies at the beautiful Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa , just minutes from Palm Springs, CA. We recommend that you visit our residency page to see our most recent guest faculty line-up, as well as to get a flavor for what you can expect from a typical residency week — it’s a jam packed time, but also, we think, the best time of the year! During the final thesis residency, all students have their thesis manuscripts read by agents, producers and publishers. Visit our blog for up-to-date news, events and updates. And please feel free to contact us with any questions you might have or to set-up a residency visit.
Journals, photographs , textbooks , travel books , blueprints , and diagrams are also often considered non-fictional. [ citation needed ] Including information that the author knows to be untrue within any of these works is usually regarded as dishonest. Other works can legitimately be either fiction or nonfiction, such as journals of self-expression, letters , magazine articles, and other expressions of imagination. Though they are mostly either one or the other, it is possible for there to be a blend of both. Some fiction may include nonfictional elements. Some nonfiction may include elements of unverified supposition , deduction , or imagination for the purpose of smoothing out a narrative , but the inclusion of open falsehoods would discredit it as a work of nonfiction. The publishing and bookselling business sometimes uses the phrase "literary nonfiction" to distinguish works with a more literary or intellectual bent, as opposed to the greater collection of nonfiction subjects.
