Can nonfiction writing be creative? Can creative writing be factual? Can anyone write? This book responds with a resounding "yes" as it sits down with the writer and bends over the task at hand, providing generous guidance, abundant examples, and numerous models for analysis. To Tell the Truthpresents strategies for practice, prompts for generating new material, and creative approaches to research that both the beginning and experienced writer will find useful. Lively essays on craft by writers in the field create an intimate colloquium of like-minded readers and writers. Engages in current conversations in the popular field of narrative nonfiction, which ranges across memoir and biography, the essay in its many guises, and literary journalism (itself an extensive field including features, profiles, immersion, investigative, and narrative journalism). A key feature, one seldom found in books on the subject, is the inclusion of essays that reveal writers9;internal processes--that quirky quality we call creativity--bringing in writers9;revelations about uniquely individual efforts at foiling the inner critic and getting beyond writer9;s block. For would-be writers interested in being walked through the process of producing written work through the development of a writing practice.
