Tell It Slant, 2nd Edition : Creating, Refining, and Publishing Creative Nonfiction
When the poet Emily Dickinson wrote, "Tell all the Truth but tell it Slant," she provided today's writers of creative nonfiction some sound advice: tell the truth but don't become mere transcribers of day-to-day life. Whether you are writing a memoir or researched essay, the award-winning authors will guide you along the journey, using intensive instruction and an abundance of writing exercises. You will learn how to find a distinctive voice, use prompts to get started and keep writing, discover stories in impossible places, tackle (and enjoy) background research, and more.
This second edition includes a new chapter on publication--print, digital; an update on "The Particular Challenges of Creative Nonfiction" chapter to include references to James Frey and other controversies regarding nonfiction ethics; and an expanded resource section and bibliography.
