Description: A blueprint for writing creative nonfiction_and getting it sold Creative nonfiction is writing that seeks to tell true stories in a style as personal, provocative, and dramatic as fiction. Lee Gutkind, a pioneer in writing and teaching creative nonfiction, explores all facets of writing in this increasingly popular genre_which includes essays, criticism, literary journalism, memoir, narrative history, and more. Gutkind discusses everything from finding a saleable subject to creative research to writing techniques.
