Summary

CREATIVE NONFICTION thoroughly explains the processes that creative writers of nonfiction use in approaching their topics so students can use the techniques in many different writing situations--from first-year composition or service-learning courses to creative writing workshops, feature writing, and memoir writing. Part I covers the essentials of style, content, and form. In Part II, each chapter introduces a new form of creative nonfiction and offers samples drawn from a diverse array of essays. Exercises and prompts help students use this form in their own writing. Part II guides students in revising their drafts, both individually and collaboratively. Throughout the text, the author speaks to the reader as a fellow practitioner and coach, offering insight into what it is like to write professionally in a variety of situations.
