Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Five stars for Tell It Slant ... An enlightening, comprehensive, and very satisfying text on writing and shaping creative nonfiction." — Sheila Bender, editor and publisher of writingitreal.com and author of Writing and Publishing Personal Essays

When the poet Emily Dickinson wrote, "Tell all the Truth but tell it Slant," she provided todays writers of creative nonfiction some sound advice: tell the truth but dont become mere transcribers of day-to-day life. Artistic truth offers a depth and vibrancy that goes beyond the everyday. But how do we, as writers, move beyond cold fact to create elegant nonfiction that makes the most of our individual “slant” on the world we live in?

The award-winning authors of Tell It Slant stretch your writing muscles as they reveal the specialized art of creative nonfiction. Whether you are writing a memoir or researched essays, the authors will guide you along your journey, using intensive instruction and an abundance of writing exercises to show you how to:

  • Gain access to your own memories
  • Look for material outside of yourself
  • Address ethical issues when writing about other people
  • Tackle (and enjoy) background research
  • Avoid clichés and discover fresh language
  • And keep the passion of writing alive

Synopsis:

Creative nonfiction is the fastest-growing segment in the writing market. Yet, the majority of writing guides are geared toward poetry and fiction writers. Tell It Slant fills the gap. Designed for aspiring nonfiction writers, this much-needed reference provides practical guidance, writing exercises, and a detailed discussion of the range of subcategories that make up the genre, including memoir, travel writing, investigative reporting, and more.
